I've been hard at work creating modern quilts. I also planned a lecture and two new workshops that I'm offering to groups that are interested. Here's some information about the workshops and lecture:
I teach a variety of modern quilting classes suitable for one to multiple days. The classes are project oriented and suitable for beginner to advanced quilters. Each class is 6 hours long which allows plenty of time for learning and hands-on sewing. You will leave the class with a better understanding of modern quilt principles and an approach that you can use in future projects. Each class begins with a short overview of the principles of modern quilting and tips on building your own modern quilting stash.

Improvisational Modern Quilt: Grey is the Modern Neutral
Grey is one of the new neutrals that the modern quilt movement has introduced. In this workshop, we’ll first talk about how ‘grey’ is a complex color. This is a color that is challenging for many quilters to work with. You will use patterned fabrics with a lot of grey in them as well as complementary solids. We’ll discuss how to give the quilt a modern “pop” of color with solid colors that pushes the palette. You will practice a simple technique for making improvisational blocks using directions that I provide using a traditional block as your starting point or completely improvising your blocks. No measuring! For more information, click HERE.
