Bite-Sized Gems: Piecing Color & Light with the Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild (Gordonville, PA)

  • Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild 37223 Ridge Rd Gordonville, PA 17529 USA (map)

Join me and members of the Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild as we talk about creating 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.
