Friday April 28 & Saturday April 29 - "Structural Improv" - Do you quilt under the influence of traditional methods and rules? Do you thrive on pointy points and perfectly square corners but secretly wish you could embrace the creative freedom of this wonky, improvisational business? If your answer is yes, then this class is for you! Starting with 5” charm squares, Krista will teach you her fun and fast piecing method that utilizes your traditional piecing and rotary cutting skills to create wonky strip units. There’s no pre-cutting of random strips, no stack ‘n whack, no free-cutting with scissors. You’ll be supported by Krista and fellow classmates as you design a table runner, wall hanging, or lap quilt with your improv units. Krista provides a relaxed, fun and encouraging environment to explore ideas and make your very own original quilt.
The fee for the workshop is $55 plus $12 for a pattern for members and $75 plus $12 for a pattern for non-members There is space in this workshop. Contact Marjorie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.
