Bite-Sized Gems: Piecing Color & Light at Bow Bench Retreat Center (near Carseland, Alberta, CANADA)

  • Bow Bench Retreat Center Carsleand, AB Canada (map)

Join me at Bow Bench Retreat Center in Carseland, Alberta for a class full of color, light, and “bling” — “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 closer to the time of the class.
