Workshops




Here are the workshops I currently offer.  Please email me with any questions you have or to initiate a booking.

All workshops require students to have basic knowledge of quilt making and working with sewing machines.


Graphic Angles





6 hour workshop
Intermediate class

In this improvisational piecing class, we will explore the use of color, solids versus prints, and learn the basic building blocks of improv half-square triangles.  We will talk about orientation of blocks and the different outcomes they can produce.  This class will really let your mind run wild.  Because we do not work with accuracy or rulers, it can be a very freeing class enjoyed by many.  Students will leave the class with a several sample blocks and the knowledge start a project at home.



Concordia





6 hour workshop
Intermediate class

In this workshop, we will learn the basics of paper piecing, which help to create precise, sharp angles and fine lines that would be rather difficult to achieve with regular piecing .  We will explore color options and work on the building blocks of Concordia, learn accurate piecing with glue basting, and students will have the confidence to finish the design at home.



Fossil



6 hour workshop
Beginner class

Master the half-square triangle while creating a bold, graphic design from my book, Quilting from Every Angle!  We will learn piecing and trimming, how to make multiple hsts at one time, and how to glue baste for accurate piecing.  Students will have the confidence to finish the design at home.


Log Cabin Explorations



6 hour workshop
Advanced beginner class

I love log cabins, and I think you will too!  We will explore this traditional block and where it can take us.  We will talk about orientation of blocks and the different outcomes they can produce.  This class will really let your mind run wild, and the log cabin block can be fairly forgiving, which is great for advanced beginners.  Students will leave the class with a several sample blocks and the knowledge start a project at home.
