Introduction by Kate:-

Hi, I'm Kate and I've always been crafty! At high school I was in the art room at every opportunity, and I was encouraged to apply to art college and went on to study Glass Blowing. It turned out I was incredibly bad at it but it didn't dampen my creative spirit. Years passed and with two small children in the house, the need to find a creative outlet was overwhelming. My youngest child was given a Linus quilt during a hospital stay and I thought to myself “I could make that” and I haven't stopped making quilts since. I revel in the freedom of crafting colourful unique designs without rigid patterns. My quilts showcase a wide range of techniques, from precise piecing to playful improvisation. Embracing a balance of creativity and learning, I weave play into my studio time. My approach is rooted in a love for the craft and a belief in the importance of play, resulting in quilts that tell a story of personal expression and thoughtful artistry. I am also increasingly interested in the rise of sustainable quilting practices and saves all of my tiny scraps of fabric for use in my work.


What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-:-

In this workshop, we will turn sewing room scraps that you might have otherwise discarded, into vibrant unique fabric strips to use in your own way. Using paper rolls as a foundation, I'll guide you in transforming your stash of small fabric scraps into convenient jelly-style rolls that can be used to add visual interest, scale, texture, or pops of colour to your work. We will also discuss ways for you to adapt this technique to give you a truly personal outcome totally unique to you - curated scrap strips, monochrome, low volume, solids, there are so many possibilities! This technique is ideal for use in true scrappy quilts as well as a great starting point for creating visually interesting fabric that can be used in modern, art and improv quilts, clothing, bag making, and mini quilts. Plus you save all that fabric from the bin!
