Part 1: Discovery

You will make small fabric compositions. Come to class with a quart size baggie full of favorite pieces of fabric. The work will be fast and intuitive, producing compositions that will become the building blocks for constructing a quilt.

Part 2: Piecing

Kathy will provide an overview of a variety of piecing techniques that can be used for completing the compositions made, including both machine and hand seams, curves, inside corners, appliqué, and embroidery stitching.

 

Part 3: Construction

Come to class with at least (4) completed compositions/blocks. This class focuses on spaces in-between that were traditionally called sashing, exploring how a vision can grow and change when we begin to look for relationships between blocks.

Part 4: Quilting

How and where does the quilted line become integral to a final composition?
