Floating World quilt by Patricia BelyeaTwo-Day Doodle Piecing Workshop    $295

Sat, March 4 & Sun, March 5, 2017

Workshop size limited to 5
At Okan Arts Shop in Ballard, Seattle

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 this two-day workshop, you make a curvy-pieced quilt top. You start by translating simple doodles into your block designs. The line work is scaled up and transferred to freezer paper. You then walk through the steps for making fabric versions of your patterns.

At the end of the workshop on Sunday, we discuss how to take your learning further with curved compositions, curvy details and curved inserts.

Participants leave the workshop with complete confidence and a skill set for making quilt tops with curves of their own designs.
