Weave a Giant Quilt with Me!
Work together on a large quilt top suitable for a wall hanging, and simultaneously learn a new technique you can apply to masterpieces of your own. No sewing machines needed, only a spirit of adventure!
Before the class, we'll agree on a color palette for our group quilt. Participants and teacher will all contribute fabrics, ribbons, lace and braided trims. We'll choose from the collection, adding an occasional zinger or touch of gold or silver. Then, students will learn "pin-weaving" and create individual weavings. Next, we'll audition various backgrounds and arrangements that use our finished, woven blocks, and decide on and fuse the final preference. In the process, we'll discuss and develop our senses of design and composition, value and color, movement and shape, balance and rhythm.
As part of this workshop, I'll be sharing various ways to sandwich and quilt your giant tapestry, showing several other examples of woven quilts.
In the process, we're gonna intertwine our senses of color and design and create a masterpiece, to show, compete in a group category, make as a very special gift from the guild, or ....!!!
