Quilt Blocks: Variation On A Theme

April 11, 2019 – April 14, 2019

Kelly Kye

During this workshop traditional quilt blocks and patterns are introduced as inspiration and the foundation of block drafting for students interested in creating their own quilt patterns. You will explore scale, pattern and color to make a series of quilt blocks that use machine sewing for construction. Students will learn construction techniques for cutting and sewing fabric to maximize time and efficiency without sacrificing design or craftsmanship. The drafts will guide participants as pattern piecing, color, and fabric choices are improvised while creating one-of-a-kind blocks that build a special quilt top. Open to all skill levels.
