Every quilter has a stash of leftovers—orphan blocks, large scraps and even fat quarters of ‘ugly’ fabric. This workshop will help you make a dent in using some of this fabric to create a beautiful modern quilt. The pattern is based on two PIECED blocks. However, you start by improvisationally piecing your stash into complex looking but easy-to-piece block sections. No partial seams required. The quilt can be made in a scrappy version OR you can use a more coordinated set of scraps and orphan blocks in a selected color palette. I will also show how using a background color in the pieced blocks can create a completely different look for the quilt.

Do you need FAST project like a small lap quilt or sets of placemats? The Fibonacci #1 Quilt class is just the ticket.

This workshop is a surprisingly easy approach to modern quilting using just a few basic blocks.  Block sizes are based on the Fibonacci sequence, a number series common to many things in nature. Bring your creativity, but don’t worry about the math—I’ve done it all for you!

In addition to instructions for a full size quilt, I will also provide pattern layouts for making a smaller lap quilt, a set of placemats or a table runner using the same block.

In this workshop, students will:

  • Learn options for fabric selection and placement
  • Learn a fast way to improvisationally piece a center block as shown in this sample quilt (OPTIONS for a pieced center are included)
  • Develop confidence for intuitive design and piecing, alternate grid layouts, and negative space.

By the end of the class, you’ll leave with full instructions for completing the quilt top, the table runner or placemats, and suggestions for quilting your project.
