Guest Lecturer:  Paula Nadelstern

Lecture: “SYMMETRY & SURPRISE: THE KALEIDOSCOPE AS DESIGN INSPIRATION”

Kaleidoscope the very word promises surprise and magic, change and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of light and color, form and motion into a complex and coherent image. My goal is to harmoniously integrate the idea of a kaleidoscope with the techniques and materials of quiltmaking. I try to free myself from a conventional sense of fabric orderliness, seeking a random quality in order to imitate the succession of chance interlinkings and endless possibilities synonymous with kaleidoscopes.

I make quilts on the same block in the Bronx where I grew up. Being a New Yorker wrapped up in the fabric of city life creates an inherent paradox contrasting the traditional image of quiltmaking as part of a simple, make-do, rural way of life with my own complex urban-shaped space.Paula Nadelstern

  • Paula will be bringing 1 yard cuts of her newest fabric collection, Wonderlust (not available in stores until January 2018) for sale at the guild meeting and 2-day workshop.

Carole Lyles Shaw Workshop

Friday Apr 20, 2018

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
