Join authors Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen for a full day workshop focusing on the improvisational Slice and Insert piecing technique from their book Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts. Learn the basic technique and a new adaptation, a foolproof strategy for matching inserts, simple techniques for adding complexity to a design as well as how to work with even width and wedge shaped inserts. Combine simple sewing with a new skill and create your own linear design. Katie and Jacquie will share quilts from the book as well as new designs to inspire you.
Tuesday, May 21st from noon-6pm/snacks included
Love hexagons, but dread hand piecing? Love sewing hexagons by machine, but find marking tedious? Be prepared to love machine-piecing hexagons and master the dreaded Y-seam with ease. Students will make the All Hexagons All the Time lap-sized quilt and sew all those hexagons with no marking. In addition Katie and Jacquie will teach a quick and easy technique for cutting all those hexagons in no time.
Wednesday, May 22nd from 10am-5pm/snacks and light lunch included.
Step into the present with this modern version of crazy piecing from the Going Crazy Chapter in Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts. Katie and Jacquie’s free-flowing take on this technique will leave you inspired to find a place for crazy-piecing in every project! Once you’ve mastered the technique, we’ll focus on finding a place for those crazy pieced sections in your quilt. Jacquie and Katie will share multiple projects to spark your creativity and set you on the path to your own crazy-pieced design.
We’re really looking forward to these workshops!
