Workshop: “Fibonacci Quilt #1”

Project size: 69” x 69”  Placemats and table runner options included.

This one-day workshop is a surprisingly easy approach to modern quilting using just a few basic blocks.

Block sizes are based on the Fibonacci sequence, a number series common to many things in nature.  Bring your creativity, but don’t worry about the math – I’ve done it all for you!

If you don’t want to make a full quilt, I also will provide instructions for making a set of placemats or a table runner using the same block.

In this workshop, students will:

  •      Learn options for fabric selection and placement
  •      Learn a fast way to improvisationally piece a center block as shown in this sample quilt.
  •      Develop confidence for intuitive design and piecing, alternate grid layouts, and negative space.

By day’s end, you’ll leave with several blocks completed, full instructions for completing the quilt top, the table runner or placemats, and suggestions for quilting your project

PQG Membership Meeting  –  1:00  to  3:00 p.m.

Featuring Guest Lecturer: Karen Stockwell                   

Lecture: Round Robins

For most of her life Karen been making art in various forms–weaving, pottery, jewelry, sewing.  Because she loves color and texture, she decided to focus on textile art and after being introduced to quilting almost 30 years ago, it has become a passion.  Karen collects fabrics in all of her travels and also dyes her own silks and cottons.  Karen’s work has been in major national and international shows as well as being in corporate & private collections, books, magazines and a calendar.

For almost 18 years Karen has been a member of an international group of quilters involved in Round Robins.  They’re from many U.S. states and about 8 countries.  Their quilts are passed around by mail, and they see the works in progress and finished quilts by email.  Over the course of time they’ve arranged to meet at Paducah and Houston and have visited each other and been in frequent communication by email.

Karen loves to help people find their creativity…to see that yes, they can be inspired.  Her classes are designed to show how you can use the pattern as a starting point and if you want, change it up, move elements around, and add different colors to totally transform the look of your work.

Workshop: “Double Wedding Ring”

Registration begins on-line February 15, 2018

Location To Be Determined

DOUBLE WEDDING RING — A MODERN MARRIAGE

No curved piecing!  No football-shaped pieces to set in! Border it, band it, change the colors on the rings!

Make it as traditional as you want, or learn how to change it up into a whole new concept.  The flexibility and versatility of this block is surprising!

In this class we’ll change the process of the Double Wedding Ring, taking out all of the curved piecing that makes this block so challenging. By appliquéing the rings, we’ll be able to focus our energies on creativity.   

You can hand appliqué, machine appliqué, or fuse to create quilts ranging in size from a miniature to a wall-hanging to one for a king-sized bed.  You will also learn how to prep all of the arcs so this is a great take-along project.

The wall-hanging with 4″ rings can be made in a full-day class.  Instructions are also given to easily change the size of the rings from 4″ to any size you want.

16″ x 16″ and up (or down).

Pattern required in class. $10.  Includes 3 full sized templates for 4″, 6″ or 8″ squares, directions for changing the size of the rings, and 3 finishing techniques.  Good for all skill levels.
