With a little planning, thinking about some basic design principles, and stepping back to look at your work, you can make creative, dynamic, and well-designed quilts. Be inspired by one of the class samples or follow your own path as you create with fabrics from your stash. You’ll love where your quilt takes you!

Kawandi and Kantha quilts come from different areas of India but share the common use of scrappy fabrics layered and held together with big stitches. Choose your style of quilt, then arrange and stitch! In the process, you’ll learn a bit about the history of these quilting styles. The hand stitching in this class is big, fun, and easy; no precision here! Don’t worry if you don’t have the “right” fabrics in the morning; you’ll paint an assortment of fabrics to create your own prints and patterned fabrics, then create a small quilt (about 18″ x 18″) that you can hang on the wall, frame, or make into a pillow or tote bag. Don’t miss this day full of fun and creativity!

Registration for this class includes show admission for Friday.
