A Live Online class with lots of time for sewing and sharing your work with fellow students. The class will be delivered live over Zoom from my studio with breaks for lunch and chocolate snacks (or your own favorite!).
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 lapquilt, 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
- 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.
