Improvisational Paper Piecing

A one-day Workshop: Saturday January 6 UPDATED
This workshop is based on one of the three design approaches that Amy shares in my second book, Improv Paper Piecing: A Modern Approach to Quilt Design. This class is technique and design based, all about approaching your paper pieced block designs improvisationally. You will design and sew your own block and work on a quilt layout using alternate grid work, negative space and other elements of modern design.

Needle Turn Applique for Beginner to Advanced Students cancelled

One-Day Workshop: Saturday February 10, 2018
Using a Heart Wreath pattern of repeating heart shapes, students will practice mastering, curves, points and notch techniques used in needle turn applique.  Through a series of hands-on demonstrations utilizing different tools, needles, threads, and Mary’s helpful hints we will examine the art of needle turn applique. Before class students can prepare a 36” plain square to applique on or piece a 16 patch background for a different look. Advanced students can try adding reverse applique techniques and off- block applique methods as time permits.

Learn to love hand quilting!

Thread Painting workshop

Two-Day Workshop: Saturday April 21 & Sunday April 22, 2018
Thread-painting gives you the freedom to make a very realistic image entirely with thread, and the only skill you need is confident free-motion quilting! Well start with warm-up exercises to learn how to use basic straight-stitch and zig-zag free-motion thread-painting, mix and shade colors, work with line, and create the illusion of volume, while discussing how to make an image realistic. With these skills in hand, well start thread-painting a photograph printed on fabric, either one provided by the instructor or your own (send ahead of time to the instructor for approval, who can also print it on fabric for $5 per 8 x 11 sheet). Youll be amazed by what you can do!
