creativity classes

Feel free to contact me to discuss these classes for your guild or quilt shop. They are designed as one-day workshops. Both are for quilters who are prepared to explore new ways of piecing.


Doodle Piecing

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 creating new directions in your work.

In a one-day class, we make two to three blocks for a curvy-pieced quilt top. We start by translating simple doodles into the block designs. The linework is transferred to freezer paper for making the patterns. We then walk through the steps for making a fabric version of the pattern.

Kouki Improv Quilt

If you’re ready to start making quilts without patterns, this is a great intro class for “stepping outside of the block.”  This one-day class works with solids and patterns to make a lyrical quilt top with playfully changing strip widths and block directions.

Start this project in a novel way—choose your solid colors first and then add the patterns. Look forward to a fun day where you can experience the freedom of making your own design choices that result in a completely unique graphic quilt.
