Classes for Tuesday

2001C – Zen Quilting

$124.00

Jenny Bowker

Location: Room 200C

One day

Tuesday, January 21st 2020

From 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM

 



Skill Level:
Beginner - Intermediate

Description:
I have been interested in the way patterns are shared between free motion quilting and the colouring books of today. For me free motion quilting pushes the world away and makes me happy, as colouring did for me as a child. This class plays with quilting by taking a main shape or two (I supply these in your notes) then breaking up the background to allow us to play with different quilting designs as fills. I show you the simplest applique you ever learnt to add a splash of colour. This class is fun and easy and it is a quick way to turn a practice piece into a lovely piece of finished work. 

Machines Provided By: BERNINA Q20/700. This classroom features half BERNINA Q20 and half BERNINA Domestic Machines. Students will split their time on both machines.
Note: The skills learned in this class are transferrable to a standard home domestic machine

Create blocks that include fudge factors so beginners to experts can sew them in a matter of minutes. Make perfect “Flying Geese” blocks by trimming them AFTER you sew the bias edges. Sew “Cat’s in the Cradle” blocks without ever cutting a triangle. Cut charm squares at an angle and trim them after sewing so every block is the exact same size. Bonus? The angled seams never have to match! Then piece a “Scrap Crazy” block in a matter of minutes and see how this is the perfect place to showcase all those decorative stitches on your machine! If time allows, make half-square triangles from 10” squares and turn them into a “Delectable Mountains” block or make a quick and easy piano key border. Along the way, learn tips and tricks for rotary cutting as well. After all, don’t we all want to reduce cutting time and have more time to sew?

This is a wonderful shop that has something for everyone – wool kits and wool to add to your stash, primitive fabrics, reproductions, and a wide selection of bright, contemporary-to-modern fabrics. If you’re familiar with Primitive Gatherings at the show, imagine that booth x 10!
