CREATING FROM A NUCLEUS

5 FULL DAYS

Explore the mystery and excitement of creating a pieced abstract quilt with little or no plan. Students will learn to start from the center and create a quilt top in a very organic way. We will discuss basic design and composition, color and value, quilting, and most importantly trusting your instincts. Sheila will demonstrate construction techniques for sewing curved seams and discuss some of the challenges you may run into with spontaneous design and piecing. This is a Master Class, but confident beginners are absolutely welcome.

SPRING RETREAT SESSION 2

The John Newcombe Tennis Ranch
325 Mission Valley Road
New Braunfels, TX 78132

Appliqué + Piecing = New Possibilities (NEW WORKSHOP)

5 FULL DAYS  

In this workshop, students will compose a design, create a full-scale pattern on freezer paper, and assemble the forms using a technique called Appli-piecing. This technique was originally developed by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry. 

By using this technique, you can bring almost any complex abstract idea into quilt form. You will retain a clean, graphic look and when complete, you will have a quilt top pieced together with a 1/4” seam allowance.
