I’ve had my sights set on running a Part II Psychedelic Baby workshop. We create secondary or cast off blocks in the Psychedelic Baby workshop that can be simply used on the back, but why not make another quilt?
I’ve been focusing my studio time on finishing up a variety of samples for this new workshop and now have enough to start rolling them out here. I’ve popped some sessions of Part II on the calendar for those of you that have already taken the first session or are signed up.
Here’s the quilt I made using the secondary blocks. I’ll call Intersected.
My past samples using the secondary blocks have been more improvisational in design, so I was aiming for a ‘traditional’ layout with Intersected. We’ll cover how to size our blocks into geometric shapes, study the construction of several more traditional designs and learn how to build out improvisational designs like I did here and here.
I’d like students to also bring with them several inspirational quilt designs from books, patterns or photos so we can talk about their potential construction using the blocks as a group.
A few details about this quilt… I’ve straight line quilted vertical random lines at different widths in white thread. The binding could really have been any of the fabrics in the quilt, but I went with the neutral Essex to have more flexibility in picking the backing fabric from stash.
The backing is a fabric that you’ve seen before if you follow the blog. I have a 70s love for this Smitten Kitten.
As always, if you’re looking for a specific workshop to fit your schedule let me know;)
Back in the 90s here in Seattle, but looking at a cooler weekend for our workshop. Enjoy Peeps!
P.S. Big thanks to Curated Quilts for featuring my quilt in their triangle issue.
