Save the date: registration for the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show opens Sept 7, 2021 and the show itself takes place March 3-5, 2022.
I’ll be teaching 3 full day workshops and I can’t wait! Check out my schedule below:
Thursday March 3, 9-5 PM Walking Foot Wonders
Learn to stitch beyond the ditch and unleash the power of your walking foot to quilt modern or traditional designs. Walking foot motifs to be taught include: wavy lines, decorative stitches, irregular grids, large continuous spirals, several straight line variations, and more! You’ll leave class armed with the confidence that yes, you can quilt your own quilts! Class will also include a discussion on basting, favorite tools and supplies that make the job easier, plus tips for putting it all together on a real quilt. Students should be comfortable with their sewing machines and will practice on their own pre-basted fabric and batting samples.
Friday March 4, 9-5 PM Free-Motion Favorites
Embrace perfectly imperfect quilting! That means little to no marking, and a whole lot of gorgeous texture. Ease into free-motion quilting with asymmetrical wavy lines, then move onto loops, traditional and modern stippling, plus curvy fillers like wishbones and cursive l’s that can expand to fit any space. Finish it off with several swirl variations, and you’ve got a toolbox of motifs to try on your next quilt! Class will also include a discussion of basic free-motion quilting tips and tools, plus figuring out how to combine motifs together in the same quilt. Students should be comfortable with their sewing machines and will practice on their own pre-basted fabric and batting samples.
Saturday March 5, 9-4 PM Improv Piecing – Modern Logs
Put a modern spin on a classic block while you learn to create improvisationally pieced Log Cabin blocks. Choose two sets of fabrics that have good contrast, such as lights and darks. You’ll need 10 fat quarters of assorted lights and 10 fat quarters of assorted darks to make the 48″ x 54″ quilt. Pattern is required and includes additional sizes. Suitable for all skill levels.
