Vintage Quilt Revival Block of the Month
A block of the month class focusing on 12 blocks from my book, Vintage Quilt Revival. This class can be taught in an accelerated 3 month timetable, or as a traditional block of the month.
Introduction to Foundation Piecing
In this class, we will be learning the basics of foundation piecing, or sewing fabric to a fabric foundation. The quilt design incorporates a traditional kite or spiderweb block with a modern aesthetic, including a variety of neutral solids, bold prints, and negative space. We will talk about color, design, and precision piecing as we work on the blocks in a relaxed environment.
Introduction to Improv Piecing
Description: In this class, we will be learning the basics of improvisational piecing. The workshop will cover: rotary cutting without a ruler, fabric placement, piecing improv blocks, when to square up the blocks, putting together an improv quilt top, and general improv design guidelines. We will also discuss different ways to quilt the top; very fast piecers may be able to baste and even partially quilt the baby quilt. Quilters of all skill levels are welcome.
Circles, Lines, & Curves: A 3 Part Long Arm Quilting Class
In this three-part class, we will be learning some of the most versatile and basic quilting shapes on a long arm—circles, lines, and curves. In this hands on class, we will practice doodling on quilt mock-ups with pencil and paper, and then practice on the long arm itself. We will also give suggestions on modifying and changing up the basic designs, changing the scale of the quilting designs, and thread color choice.
These skills are very transferable to free motion quilting on a home machine—come learn something new!
