Palmetto Electric (New River)
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
