I have started offering a series of online modern quilt classes year because so many groups and shops are not able to offer face to face events for a few months. Here’s the latest addition to my 2020 online quilt class schedule. Go HERE TO REGISTER and see the full schedule of my LIVE online classes.
LIVE/ON DEMAND SCHEDULED: STASH JAZZ
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. In the online class, I will demonstrate several techniques for improvisationally piecing scraps to achieve a wildly complex look.
What the class includes:
- In the tutorial videos, you will see me draw from a bag of random scraps real time and see how I use what I have to achieve an interesting look.
- I’ll demo making multi colored blocks and how to create a monochrome scrap quilt.
- I’ll demo using orphan blocks including blocks with ‘mistakes’ in them!
You start making this quilt 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.
LIVE/On Demand Scheduled: The class will be a combination of on demand videos and a Live Zoom Q&A session. The class will be a one day session and students will have access to the prerecorded video tutorials for one month following the class. Go HERE to Register.
