EXPRESSING YOUR TRUE SELF - ONE PIECE AT A TIME

5 FULL DAYS

Explore the mystery and excitement of creating a pieced abstract quilt with little or no plan. I will share the many different approaches I take when starting a new piece. Students will have the freedom to follow the path that comes to them naturally. We will discuss basic design and composition, color and value, quilting, and most importantly, trusting your instincts. I will demonstrate construction techniques for sewing curved seams and discuss some of the challenges you may run into with spontaneous design and piecing. One-on-one time will be spent with each student.
