Online Interactive Workshop: Traditional Curve Piecing
We're absolutely delighted to welcome another NEW guest tutor under the CraftyMonkies creative umbrella: the wonderful & hugely talented Heather Black is joining us to teach her fabulous Traditional Curved Piecing (with Stripes!) class - and we can't wait! Here's Heather to tell you all about it!...
Introduction by Heather:-
A little bit about myself, I'm a single (widowed) mother of a beautiful little girl and sneak quilting in whenever possible. I've always been creative and I began seriously quilting in the summer of 2011 and finished my first quilt in November 2011. I loved it instantly. I worked through the piecing and sandwiching then began hand quilting. I had no idea that you could use a sewing machine to quilt so I hand quilted my first quilt, queen size. That was the last time I hand quilted an entire quilt! I now finish almost all my quilts on my longarm. I'm a designer but I'm not a traditional quilter. I love and respect the talent, time and creativity in traditional quilts but they would look really odd mixed into my home decor. I'm a modern to contemporary quilter and designer with a love for bold geometric designs which I hope you will enjoy making with me! "Lot No. 1" (the quilt I have chosen to work with you on) is the first in my Auction House Series of quilt designs. It's hot off the press, so please come join me. I'm really looking forward to working with you!
What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-
We're going to spend so much time taking a really deep dive into how to successfully piece curves and stripes. Most importantly how to mix those curves and stripes for an extra measure of depth and movement. You'll be amazed how the two can really complement each other, we'll talk about geometric shapes and why they work. The workshop will also cover how to make curve templates form easy to find materials (saving you a fortune in supplies in the future!) and how to experiment with mixing different size curves to make abnormal abstract shapes. My aim is to teach you things you things you may never have heard of before. There is always something new to learn!
Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
This class is geared for an advanced Beginner/Intermediatequilter/sewer. What do I mean by that? Makers will need to have the basic knowledge of how to use a rotary cutter, sewing machine and sew a consistant 1/4'' seam, so not really that advanced after all!
