Bite-Sized Gems: Piecing Color & Light with the Chinook Guild of Fibre Arts (Calgary, Alberta, CANADA)

  • Chinook Guild of Fibre Arts Calgary, Alberta Canada (map)

Join me in Calgary, Alberta when I spend time with the great quiltmakers of the Chinook Guild of Fibre Arts talking about “Bite-Sized Gems”!

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 at time of booking.
