This workshop will take place over two sessions with time for sewing your blocks in between the sessions.
Every quilter has a stash of leftovers—leftover or test 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 blocks but we start by improvisationally piecing the stash into complex but easy to piece block sections. No partial seams required.
I will give you tips for piecing improvisationally. You will be amazed at your results.
The quilt can be made in a scrappy version OR you can bring a more coordinated set of scraps and orphan/leftover blocks in a selected color palette. I’ll also show how using a background color in the blocks can create a completely different look for the quilt.
- In the class, you will see me draw from a bag of random scraps real time and see how I use what I have to piece an improvisational block.
- I’ll demo using orphan blocks including blocks with ‘mistakes’ in them!
- I’ll demo how to select and place your improvisational blocks in the quilt layout.
