    Virtual Workshop - Courthouse Colourplay

                Sign-up starts Members 07/24/21  and Non-Members 08/21/21

                        

                                               


    Explore the possibilities of colour expression and free-cutting while you create this wonky, nested Courthouse Step quilt (reminiscent of paper lanterns) in your own personal colour story. We’ll work intuitively from the centre out, creating a dynamic quilt with loads of personality. There will be no squaring up with this one -- instead Krista will show you how to “build out”, finding the fit between adjacent blocks and using up all of our scraps in the process.

    As in all of her workshops, Krista will share loads of tips while encouraging all students to find confidence in new techniques that will inform their pursuit of designing original quilts. Put your traditional quilting skills to work and explore improvisational design and piecing in a fun, supportive environment.

    Quilt size: wall hanging to lap size depending on the amount of fabric you start with. A collection of 18-25 F8's for wall hanging or 18-25 FQ's for large lap to single size (consider solids or reads-as-solids, woven shirts or small prints) plus 1 FQ contrast colour for block centres is recommended.

    Virtual Workshop - Speed Date with Improv

    Sign-up starts Members 07/25/21  and Non-Members 08/22/21


                        

                                               


    Think of this class as speed dating with improvisational piecing techniques that include curves and free-cutting.  It will be fast-paced and a lot of fun:  several techniques are introduced and demonstrated one after the other with very little time to second guess, stress or obsess over perfection. Every student will end up with a unique, original improv sampler quilt!  The focus here is to explore line, shape and happenstance in abstract design, so keep things simply graphic by using solid-coloured fabrics in black, white and one pop of colour. 

    In the afternoon, Krista will share design wall tips to jigsaw the improv elements together, seeking balance and creative design opportunities.  Some pre-cutting is required.

    This Zoom class combines pre-recorded technique videos with live instruction/support from Krista throughout the class.

    Quilt Size: without borders, approximately 20" x 20". Fabric required: 1/2 yard black, 1/2 yard white, FQ colour (all solids or reads-as-solids).

    2021 Virtual Show & Tell: The Quilting Lifeline


    This past year... the ups... the downs...the unprecedented occurrences in our lives. I don't know about you but I'm exhausted with living through history that authors will write about for decades to come! Thank God for quilting and quilting friends. Let's gather together virtually for this November's Show & Tell and share the works that we have created over the course of the year and celebrate the many friendships that the guild provides for each of us. Quilting and friends are truly a lifeline pulling us towards better times.


    Sincerely,

    Jean Smith, Your Show & Tell Hostess

    Virtual Workshop - David Sirota

            Sign-up starts: Members 10/12/2021 and Non-Members 11/11/2021

                        

                                               

                                               

    This class is pure FUN!  Why?  Because we let go of our desire to “control” the outcome.  After all, scrappy means using scraps of all different colors and patterns.  

    For many of us paper piecing can be a quilting brain-teaser, right?  Well if you love paper pieced projects but find the process somewhat “confusing”, then this is the class is for you.  You’ll be learning my revolutionary “No More Tears” © method of paper piecing, and although you won’t be finishing the entire project in class, you should have at least one completed 12” x 12” star block and the tools you’ll need to finish your project at home.  And it will take half the time you’d expect from paper piecing.   Don’t believe me?  Well, join the class and find out how!

    Virtual Workshop - David Sirota

            Sign-up starts Members 10/13/21  and Non-Members 11/12/21

                        

                                                  


    Are you curious about paper piecing?  Do you and paper piecing already have a love/hate relationship?  This class will make paper piecing a love/love relationship.  The New York Beauty has always been a very popular pattern.  But why call it NY Beauty when I live in NH?  So, we’re making the NH Beauty wall hanging.  We’ll not only be using my “No More Tears” © method of paper piecing, but we’ll also tackle curved seams.  They are not nearly as hard as they look

    We probably won't finish the entire project in class but you'll have all the tools you'll need to finish it at home.

    In this class you will learn:

    -The basics of paper piecing

    -The “No More Tears” method

    -NH Beauty basics

    -Precise block and quilt top construction and curved seams

    The finished piece measures 24" x 24" without borders.
