Online Interactive Workshop: Piecing Stripes & Strips!

We're delighted to be hosting this Piecing Stripes & Strips workshop with the wonderfully engaging & hugely talented US-based quilter, Heather Black! This class will see participants embrace mixing & matching colours to create wonderful Pieced Stripes & Strips designs for such as quilts, cushions, etc...

Introduction by Heather:-

Piecing Stripes & Strips is the second in my Auction House Series of quilt designs. My Auction House Series is a collection of abstract quilt designs capturing the spirit of those found objects that you love to display in your home. Each of the quilts in the series will have a similar colour palette and will co-ordinate effortlessly with each other but are also attention grabbers in their own right. There’s no need to make all quilts in the series, you can complete the 3 quilt sets or pick and choose your favourite to make. In the first workshop I ran with CraftyMonkies we focused on sewing Traditional Curves. In this second workshop we’re going to focus on piecing stripes and strip sets, as well as, conquering some of your greatest colour fears!

This workshop will cover selecting a colour palette and how to tie even the busiest of colour schemes together as a cohesive presentation: I really hope you'll join me - we're going to have a lot of fun & I'm absolutely convinced you'll love everything that we cover!...

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

During the Piecing Stripes & Strips workshop you will go over ways to successfully piece stripes, strip sets and how to mix and match colours. The workshop will also cover how to cut fabric and sew strips for the straightest stripes possible. They’re will also be some tips for trouble-shooting wonky strips! The workshop will also go over the basics of colour theory, picking colour combinations and it will also encourage the attendees to 'trust their gut' when it comes to their own creative colour choices!

Additional Information relevant to this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Heather's Auction House Series is a set of quilts that are desinged to make an individual abstract statement and still all mix and match with the other quilts in the series. The Pieced Stripes & Strips (Lot No. 2) quilt creates order out of chaos with a mix of horizontal stripes, vertical stripes and even four patches. This workshop will explore how to use color, shape and layout to create a pleasing quilt design as well as a deep-dive into working with stripes and strip sets successfully.

In her words, Heather is "super excited" to be partnering with CraftyMonkies for her second Auction House quilt release and to spend time exploring design and stripes with you!
