New Workshops Open: Sustainable Quilting Life and Five By Five Variations

I JUST ANNOUNCED TWO NEW WORKSHOPS!  Here are details and links.

Sustainable living has become more important to many of us…so how can we use those ideas to create a sustainable stashing process to support an ecofriendly quilting life?  I’ve been a champion of #SewYourStash for years and I’m learning more about the importance of being a conscious consumer.  I know that I’m on the right track to a sustainable quilting life  and I’ve learned a lot along the way.  I decided to create this workshop to share what has actually worked for me.  We will share practical strategies in our sustainable community.

The first offering of this workshop was a great success–thanks to a group of wonderful students. Based on their comments, I’ve decided to offer it in a slightly different time schedule.  The workshop will be conducted in two Live Zoom sessions scheduled for June 16 and June 23 from 7-9 p.m. Eastern. (Check here to convert to your time zone.)

This schedule will give everyone time to sew up their blocks so that we can focus on creating unique layouts in the second session.

What’s Covered in the Workshop Sessions

Both sessions will be interactive and fun! I will be live in my studio over Zoom.

Session 1, June 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. Eastern:  We will focus on selecting fabric and how to create your own unique variation. I will show you sample fabric combinations including an AfroModern print and even how to use ombres.  I’ll also share quilts by previous students to spark your imagination. there will be plenty of time for questions and answers.   Following this session, you will start sewing up your blocks.

Session 2, June 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. Eastern:  Layouts and Variations!  You will work with me in real time as I arrange and rearrange my own blocks to create variations.  I’ll work with my African print blocks.  Then you will have time to work on your layout and get help from me and other students in the class.

Five By Five Variations is a very modern pattern.  It’s all straight seams–no Y seams, partial seams or curves in these blocks. It’s beginner friendly–and it provides fun opportunities to challenge yourself to create an improvisational layout with the blocks.
