Being able to add complex curves to your quilt designs is like being given keys to the universe. It opens up so many possibilities for inspiring new directions in your quilts.

​In this online workshop, you learn to add curved piecing to your quilt designs. You start by making a complex curved block. Then you move to continual curves, curved compositions, circles and squares, and curved connectors.

The workshop challenges you to think creatively as you learn new skills. Besides attending the workshop, you have two weeks to work on your projects before you get your next assignment.

The student must be able to:

- to sew and understand quilting terms. Ideally the student is a competent quilter

-attend a Zoom event with a device larger than a mobile phone, such as an iPad or laptop

-photograph homework assignments and post them digitally to a hidden private Facebook group (or to submit homework photos to Patricia if not a Facebook user)

Students will receive the Supply List on January 28—two months before the start of the Workshop. If students sign up after this date, they will receive the Supply List immediately after registering.

Patricia Belyea takes joy in teaching quilters how to add curves to their fabric compositions. Her step-by-step approach gives quilt novices and veterans alike the skills to design and sew multi-directional curves that are completely flat. Patricia has taught curved piecing in the US, Canada and the UK.

If you have a schedule change before the Workshop begins and Okan Arts can fill your space, you will receive a full refund less a $50 service fee. Once the Workshop begins, there are no refunds for missing any or all of the sessions.
