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 straights, and curved connectors.

The workshop challenges you to think creatively as you learn new skills. Besides attending the workshop, you have a full week to work on your homework before you get your next assignment.

You totally blew me away with this class. It really challenged me and often in ways I had not expected. I learned far more than how to create designs with complex curves.  Anne G

My head is full of inspiration, skills, ideas and freedom to create from the experience of being in your class.  Sally C

You lead THE BEST CLASS! Simply can’t say that loudly enough. That you are an artist is great however that you are an artist who is also a gifted teacher is unusual. I have benefited from your class way beyond my expectations. WAY beyond. Darcy S

I really appreciate this class and your wonderful teaching style. It has made a real difference in my understanding of not only the use of curves (which I now loooove!) but also in terms of how to think about creating designs and then making patterns to carry them out.  Annemarie R

You are a competent quilter and are able to:

- to sew and understand quilting terms

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

- photograph your homework assignments (with a smart phone is perfect) and email them to Patricia the day before each workshop session

You receive the Supply List shortly after registering.

In addition to each 3-hour workshop session, you receive a link to the Zoom recording of the session the next day. 

There are homework assignments for Sessions 1 to 4, and no homework for Session 5. 

Each Workshop has a hidden private Facebook Group that you can join for introducing yourself, showing your work, and giving encouragement to others.

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. 

This workshop is as much about stretching yourself creatively as learning a new skill set.

- Don't measure yourself against anyone else

- Smile while you work on your projects

- Keep sewing
