Pat Sturtzel
Beginner, Intermediate
$70
Plus Kit Fee

Sometimes creativity is about trying something new. It’s about asking “What if?” along the way. In this class, you will be encouraged to get out of your comfort zone by exploring Improvisational piecing techniques. Working without templates, using scraps of fabric, you can explore color and design ideas without feeling tied to a specific pattern. It is a great warm-up exercise to the design process. Improv piecing encourages creativity because the end result is not set in stone. You will be sewing together pieces of fabrics, make some cuts and sewing those pieces to other pieces. The changes you make to what you have already created will help inform your decisions as to how to proceed to bring the design to a successful conclusion. Small improv pieces can be combined to create larger compositions or can be cut into more conventional shapes to combine with traditional piecing processes. Pat will have a large variety of samples showing how improvisational piecing can be used in creating quilt compositions. Come have fun making your own improv pieced fabric!

“Specimens”

Susan describes the origin and creation of her Specimens quilt exhibit. She will discuss her technique as well the inspiration for her quilts, using the quilts themselves as examples. This collection of extinct, endangered or otherwise unique creatures is anchored by her 20-foot saltwater crocodile, “Crocodylus Smylus.”

All the pieces in the collection are dense with color and texture. The critters, while lifelike in form, are most often imaginatively colored. Still the overall effect is almost realistic, despite the use of purples and pinks and aquas and canary yellows.

While the work does have an environmental message Susan doesn’t think about that when she’s making a quilt. They might be the last of their kind, like the golden toad in “Million to One,” or one of the last, like the rhino in “Tickled Pink,” but they are all unique and irreplaceable. At least she hopes that’s the message people receive. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.

The goal for this class is refining seam allowance. Learn the right way to measure your seam allowance on any machine with any weight of fabric. The ultimate test to a correct seam allowance is making a quilt with repeating two blocks that do not have the same number of pieces, columns, or rows. This dynamic quilt, The Rainbow Swirl, repeats two basic blocks in a checkerboard arrangement, creating a striking design. This class is great for beginners and can help turn a novice into an expert. Not only do we work on perfect patchwork techniques, but these blocks are in color sequences and rotations. Learn how to cut in order, to piece in order, to have swirls of color throughout a quilt. It is all connected, from grainline to seam allowance; perfect patchwork is in the details.

Immerse yourself in techniques and terminology used to create many of the byAnnie bags while making a stylish, useful bag that features three different types of zippered pockets. We will start by using a home machine to quilt three layers; main fabric, Soft and Stable stabilizer and lining fabric. The project includes sewing on four zippers, each in a slightly different way to create a mesh pocket, vinyl pocket and front quilted pocket. The final zipper zips on three sides, reminiscent of a zippered binder. To finish it off, you will cut binding on the bias and bind the bag. Many of the byAnnie patterns cater to quiltmakers’ storage of often-used items. This bag could be used to carry supplies needed for a piecing project, rulers, pattern and even an i-Pad. You can make it in one of three sizes, depending on your end usage plans.
