    Virtual Workshop -  Going in Circles     

                

                                       

                                                


    Intermediate/Advanced

    This class will show you how to do a very unique technique of curved piecing.  Developed by your instructor, Marge Tucker, this is a more advanced class but anyone with a sense of adventure can do it!!

    These curved blocks give added movement and motion and work well with other improvisational techniques classes or with other abstract blocks.

    Students will learn free-form cutting and curved piecing techniques,

    Virtual Workshop - Eel Grass and Eddies         

         

                                  

    Eel Grass and Eddies is a great class to "get your feet wet" with improvisational curved cutting and piecing.  Two fabric rectangles yield two reverse image blocks that can be using as is or cut into smaller units.  I also show variations that can be made with the blocks, as shown in the black and white quilt. This technique is fast and fun.  All levels welcome.

    Virtual Lecture - Improv and Abstractions in Antique Quilts


                                    

    Some of our quilting ancestors were ahead of their time! We are not the first generation of quilters to discover improvisational quilting; but we may be the ones who have embraced it and made it mainstream. In this trunk show, I display antique and vintage quilts that are improvisationally constructed.  So much inspiration and some great lessons can be learned from these graphic and abstract “antiques”.

    Virtual Workshop -  Embrace the Chaos  - An Exercise in Controlled Randomness

                Sign-up starts Members 3/27/2021 and Non-Members 4/27/2021

                        

                                             

    Using only paper and pencils - no computers required! - I will walk students through a series of worksheet exercises that mimic the programming language I use to generate my quilt patterns. By using controlled elements in a random way, each participant will end up with a unique quilt pattern layout - no two Chaos Quilts are the same!

    As a group, we’ll discuss design flow and tweak our individual layouts. Then we’ll cut fabrics and work on piecing our designs, using provided block-building instructions. At the end of the class, each participant will leave with their own random geometric quilt design and will have the knowledge required to complete the project. 1 Full-Day Session allows time for drafting, design and initial block construction.
