Taking quilt classes online isn’t brand new. But, traveling teachers like me are recognizing the importance of upping our game and offering even more options for learning about quilting. I have created a series of live and on demand workshops that you can take from the comfort of your own home.
Fractured Disappearing 9 Patch — LIVE & ONLINE! REGISTRATION IS OPEN
This class is perfect for a Confident Beginner –with enough challenge for more experienced quilters who want to learn about improvisation. Two versions of this quilt will be provided in the pattern. .
This quilt is a modern take on a classic design. The familiar 9 Patch block will become a thoroughly modern design. Students will prepare and bring several “base” Nine-Patch blocks with them to the class. During the workshop, we will use improvisational cutting and piecing to ‘fracture’ each of the blocks. This is an improvisational piecing project that will give you lots of opportunity to play and have fun!! I call this improvisational process “fracturing” the block because I use a series of straight cuts to slice apart a pieced block and then sew it back together. Eventually the original nine patch design disappears and an improvisational patch block is what’s left. This project can be made in any combination of fabrics, using bold focus prints and neutral backgrounds paired with coordinating solids or near-solids. You can also make a patriotic prints version! In the class, I will demo making an improvised Border and Binding!
