#57101, Diamond Dance

Day: Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: McKinley Room
Teacher: Kimberly Einmo
Level: Intermediate

 

Member: $88 Retail: $110
(Plus Handout Fee)


This brand-new variation of Kimberly’s most popular class is sure to be another sold-out workshop! The diamond design and quilt layout possibilities are practically endless, but this version comes with a spontaneous twist! You will stitch your strips together randomly for a vibrant and completely surprising color scheme! Kimberly will teach you how to strip piece and cut diamond building blocks from strip units using either her EZ Jelly Roll Ruler or new Precision Precuts Ruler with no “Y” or set-in seams. You’ll focus on accurate and efficient cutting and piecing techniques, and Kimberly will share her best tips and tricks for achieving perfect, flat blocks with sharp star points. The real fun comes as the quilt is assembled with straight-set blocks, not diamond wedges or blocks on point. This process of not having to think about fabric placement is truly freeing. Choose a bundle of strips (mostly medium in value) and join in the fun!

#55501, Improvisational Half Log Cabin Blocks

Day: Wednesday, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Roosevelt I Room
Teacher: Heather Jones
Level: Beginner, Intermediate

 

Member: $48 Retail: $60


Take your improvisational quilting up a notch. In this class, students will learn the technique of creating large-scale improvisational half Log Cabins. While the traditional Log Cabin block has been fundamental to quiltmaking for hundreds of years, it becomes energized and fresh when constructed with this technique. It also provides an opportunity to design intuitively without precise measuring or cutting. An added benefit of this type of patchwork is that it produces completely unique, one-of-a-kind blocks with a strong graphic quality. Heather will discuss how fabric placement and color choices affect the design of the block. Students will finish the class with a number of completed blocks that can be used in small patchwork projects or as the beginning of a larger quilt.
