Modern Quilt Workshop Description
Improvisation Made Easy: Fibonacci Style!
Project: Quilt measuring approximately 59 by 62 inches. Pattern Designers: Sheryl Schleicher and Carole Lyles Shaw
This one day modern quilt workshop is a surprisingly easy no-math approach to making a modern quilt using just a few basic block sizes. Block sizes are based on Fibonacci math—a number series common to many things in nature such as the spirals in seashells. Don’t worry about the math! You can create a quilt that looks modern, random and improvisational quickly and easily using this method. This is also a great ‘stash buster’ quilt!!
Participants will develop confidence for intuitive design and piecing, alternate grid layouts and incorporating negative space. Class is a full day and you should leave with several blocks completed and full instructions and layout for completing the quilt. During class, we will discuss modern quilting approaches using straight line quilting, improvisational quilting and other approaches that can be easily accomplished on your home machine. We will review the use of quilting with threads in variegated, blending or contrasting colors.
I hope you can join me!!
This quilt can be made in many different colorways. Here are some finished examples from workshops that I taught in 2015.
