#17504, Swirling Fan Centrifuge

Day: Wednesday, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Location: 103B
Teacher: Dianne S. Hire
Level: Intermediate

Member: $56 Retail: $70


 

Create a Swirling Fan Centrifuge block made from a set of squared up and inset CURVIES, intuitively created and template free. A fun technique and best yet: no more fear of sewing curves! Never-you-mind knowing which is concave or convex. For the three-hour workshop, create a wallhanging made of four small units. If you wish to begin a larger six-block quilt you may, but you will complete the blocks at home. Get ready to love curvies.

No need to ever fear curves again! This class teaches a template-free, intuitively created wallhanging created of curvy shapes in a rectangular panel shape. Achieve dimension and motion in a quickly sewn together top with the appearance of difficulty. By the end of three hours, you may have completely designed your Elegant Slender Curvies wallhanging and be sewing it together. This may be developed into a much larger quilt.

#16103, Danglers: Curvies and Wedgies (Linear Tails)

Day: Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: 103B
Teacher: Dianne S. Hire
Level: Intermediate, Advanced

Danglers are those linear, fabric things hanging from many of Dianne’s quilts. As the day progresses, excitement builds with impromptu design, color, technique, and the potential wallhangings being created. Many danglers are made as wedgies and curvies and then put together into one or two quilts, depending completely upon your choice. There are no boundaries and no rigid rules.

Need to lighten up? Want to have some quilting fun? Play four liberating games at your sewing machine: intuitive and improvisational, slice with abandonment, trade slivers of blocks, and hunt for exciting colors and fabrics just begging for a place to land in a quilt! You will return home with a few oxymoron blocks in random order. Can’t you see it now? Fabrics all over the floor and mayhem, chaos, and delightful laughter filling the room. An excellent sense of humor is a requirement and a good friendship with a sewing machine and basic piecing knowledge are a must!
