Have you ever looked at a quilt block and thought...hmmm...I wonder what happens when I change up this part of the block?  Will that look good or weird?

In this class, we will explore ways to take traditional quilt blocks and rearrange the colors or their elements to create new blocks.  I will share tips from other designers on ways to approach a block remix.  We will explore how line, color and shape can affect the final look and ways to consider the effect when putting your new blocks together.

We will talk a lot about color and value.  We will take a block and play with graph paper, pencils, bits of colored paper, and scissors.  Once you have a new block, we will review easy quilt math so you can make it!

This workshop will be both IN-PERSON and on ZOOM.

SUPPLIES TO BRING:

  • Your inner child who loved coloring
  • Your imagination and sense of play
  • Graph paper
  • Pencil
  • Scotch tape
  • Eraser
  • Paper scissors
  • Colored pencils
  • Paper for taking notes

If you want to bring some bits of fabric, you can play with that, too!

Instructor will bring Colored paper, extra colored pencils, graph paper, tape, images of blocks, and a willingness to help you play and hear your ideas!
