Bite-Sized Gems: Piecing Color & Light with the Stringtown Quilters Guild (Burlington, KY)

  • Stringtown Quilters Guild Burlington, KY (map)

Join me and members of the Stringtown Quilters Guild as we create quilts full of color and light in my “Bite-Sized Gems” class! Using the design and piecing techniques I rely on to create my diamond portraits, students will create their own singularly beautiful work of faceted light. After choosing from one of several pre-selected images based on their skill level, students will learn how to code each piece for color, location, and adjacency; position template pieces onto hand-painted fabric to achieve the desired light effects; and ultimately create their own unique study in faceted color. Students will leave the class with a small top that can later be hand- or machine-quilted at home. Student supply list will be provided closer to the time of the class.
