Quilt with Judy
Workshop & Lectures
|POCKETBOOK QUILTING (English Paper piecing) Tue, Nov 19 5:30-8:30||Join the "hexie" craze! This hand sewn technique is the perfect summer project. Tuck it into your pocketbook and take it with you to the beach, ballgame or to sit on the porch swing. You can even teach the young people in your life this method of sewing hexagons around paper templates and then sewing them into different patterns. Create your own project from the techniques learned.|
BEYOUND SQUARES AND RECTANGLES Wed., Oct 30 5:30-8:30
An important concept for any quilter! This is the second portion of Judy's Quilt Logic class. Learn how to deal with half square and quarter square triangles. How do you cut a loose triangle? How do you use triangle paper? What is a connector? How do I determine the size to cut these triangles and when do I use a half sq versus a quarter cut triangle? Once you understand these concepts, you will be on your way to designing your own patterns and make decisions on which technique best suits your needs.
BITTERSWEET AUTUMN Thur, Sept 12 5:30-9pm
Autumn is in the air with this project! Create a backdrop of log cabin blocks that will be appliqued with fall leaves. Many techniques can be used, from working with wool, to machine stitching (zig zag, buttonhole or scribble).
QUODLIBET Tue, Oct 8 5:30-9pm
This quilt takes on a Frank Lloyd Wright feel, very appropriate for us living in the area. Depending on your fabric choices, it also has an ethnic look. Learn the piecing techniques and tips for making this rather artsy quilt.
CLASSMATE Pouch Wed, Nov 13 5:30-9
A useful designer looking organizer for carrying quilting tools, handwork or even your jewelry. This classy case is tri-folded and when open, has zippered clear vinyl pockets inside. A great gift for Christmas....but I'll bet you will need to have one for yourself as well!
