Speed Date With Improv
Speed Date with Improv (wallhanging or table topper size)

Think of this class as speed dating with improvisational piecing techniques that include curves and free-cutting. It will be fast-paced and a lot of fun: several techniques are introduced and demonstrated one after the other with very little time to second guess, stress or obsess over perfection. Every student will end up with a unique, original quilt! The focus here is to explore line, shape and happenstance in abstract design, so keep things simply graphic by using solid-coloured fabrics in black, white and one pop of colour. In the afternoon, we’ll work together on the design wall to jigsaw the improv elements together, seeking balance and creative design opportunities. Some pre-cutting is required.

Materials fee: $2/student

Square Peg Round Hole
Quarter Round (20” square, 40” square, or expandable to full-sized 80” square quilt)

This is a modern log cabin variation design with exciting possibilities! The original Quarter Round quilt hung in the small quilts category at QuiltCon2016 and Round Peg, Square Hole was created to showcase RJR Supreme Cotton Solids and appeared in the RJR booth at Fall Quilt Market 2016. This quilt has a multitude of design possibilities for secondary pattern and colour play. Workshop covers accurate cutting, perfecting a scant 1⁄4” seam allowance, accurate piecing without pins and design wall support with fellow students. A colouring page is sent in advance if students wish to plan their quilt before class.

Pattern Fee: $12/student
