Fractured Disappearing 9 Patch

Join me and a small group of quilters for a live intensive hands on workshop!  Registration is limited to 8 students per group so that I can give you personal attention and coaching.

This is a  COMBINATION Live class with video tutorials on the prework. The class will be a live session delivered over Zoom with prerecorded videos on fabric selection and tips and techniques to complete the project. After registration, you will receive information for access to the prerecorded videos.

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.

Students will also receive instruction for making a 2nd version of this quilt as a bonus pattern.

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: bold focus prints; ombres; African prints; modern prints paired with neutral backgrounds and coordinating solids or near-solids. You can also make a patriotic prints version!
