#38501, How Should I Quilt This?

,

Day: Friday, 8:30 – 11:30 a.m.
Location: Lincoln Room
Teacher: Jodi Robinson
Level: All levels
Member: $48 Retail: $60

 


How many times have you finished a quilt top (or perhaps you quilt for others) and when it comes time for the quilting find yourself asking, “How should I quilt this?” Jodi will share with you her suggestions for choosing your quilting designs, along with discussion/suggestions from other students in class. Along the way she will also talk about choosing a suitable batting, thread types, colors, and marking. This will be an open discussion with student involvement. Students should bring at least one quilt top that they would like quilting suggestions for. Preview designs on top of the quilts using a large plastic overlay and dry-erase markers. This class will be beneficial for any machine quilter whether you quilt on a longarm, midarm, or domestic sewing machine.

Are you having difficulty trying to decide exactly what designs to use when quilting modern quilts? Whether you are making your own modern quilts or have been receiving them from your customers, Jodi will show you some amazingly SIMPLE freehand designs that are very adaptable and effective in achieving texture and movement in the often irregular-shaped piecing and large areas of negative space found in many modern quilts. You will learn the basic designs, and then, how you can add to them to create more complex variations, depending on the look you want to achieve. Discuss using the same clues needed with traditional quilts when deciding on a quilting plan such as looking at fabric patterns and piecing shapes within the quilt for inspiration. You are going to be amazed by the adaptability of these very SIMPLE designs.

While Jodi just loves the look of straight-line quilting, especially on modern quilts, she does become easily bored when doing it on a large quilt, or even a large area of a quilt. Let Jodi show you some very simple ways that you can break things up a bit, by adding some bends and twists to your straight lines, and a couple of tricks to create optical illusions within straight line quilting.  You will also learn some neat ways to add small areas of interest, and about using straight, wavy, and flowing curvy lines both alone, or together.

#38511, Tilework

Let Jodi show you a fun way to create unique designs that are so versatile you can use them as background fills, in borders and blocks, and as feature designs in large areas of negative space. By marking a basic Tilework layout (think: straight grid, circular grid, triangles, mosaic, and more), then filling in areas with multiple freehand designs, you will create designs that are unique to you! You will see how endless the options are when you discover how many creative options you have. You can choose to have “grout” lines between your tiles if you like (or not), and then decide if you will quilt them, leave them unquilted, or fill them with a design. All of these creative options allow you to determine the textural effects your design will provide.
