Parisian Curves MultiLayer Blocks Virtual Workshop

Registration is open for my VIRTUAL Parisian Curves Multilayer Improv Workshop.  This is based on  my original Parisian Curves pattern from my first book, Madly Modern Quilts.  This version of Parisian Curves has been a very popular workshop and I’ve decided to offer a live virtual workshop again this Spring.

Here’s my latest sample quilt using this technique.

I had fun choosing a bold modern print as my focus fabric.  Blocks finish at various sizes from 4″ to 8″.

 

Note:  This is NOT the process used to make the large scale blocks from Parisian Curves Upscale.  Parisian Curves Upscale is a separate process covered in a class that will (eventually) be offered as an ondemand class. 

MultiLayered Freehand Curved Blocks with Improv Layouts

This is a quilt created using only a few block sizes that will fit together easily.  The multilayered freehand cut curves make the quilt look very improvisational.

In the workshop, I will demonstrate how to cut and sew freehand multi-layered curved blocks–no templates or pinning involved. Then, we will combine these pieced blocks with blocks cut from the background fabric in a planned layout that looks completely improvised. We will also discuss using the background fabric in the blocks to create a floating effect with lots more negative space.  See the last page of this handout for more sample quilts.

You can create a quilt that looks random and improvisational quickly and easily! Using this approach, you will find there are many variations in your layout and fabric color choices.

Participants will have loads of fun and develop confidence freehand cutting and piecing gentle curves, combining prints and solid fabrics and incorporating negative space.

NOTE: I will be recording the demo portions of this workshop.  You are free to turn off your video and change your screen name during the recording times to protect your privacy.

Here’s a version that I made using Ombres.

Here’s a version made using modern batik fabrics in the crib quilt size.

These batiks are from Island Batiks and may still be available in your local quilt shop.  But you could use any line of batiks that have a fresh, modern design vibe.
