Design Your Own Nature Quilt

2 Day Workshop


Class sample: Cosmo Cotillion

Note: Your quilt will look nothing like the class sample, since you’ll design it from your own photo

This class will help take the fear out of design. Using your own nature photo, you’ll learn how to interpret it in fabric. Multiple group and solo exercises will give you the skills and confidence you need to start your own design. A raw edge collage technique will ensure maximum flexibility and speedy results.

These are just a few of the things you’ll be learning:

  • Creating a sense of depth.
  • Identifying and placing a focal point.
  • How cropping can help a composition.
  • Getting your fabric to do the work.
  • How to work with raw edge collage.

Note: No artistic skills are needed, but artistic courage is required.

Kimberly Einmo Lone Starburst

Class Sample of Lonestar Burst

Lone Starburst

 6-hour workshop / Intermediate level  


 Kimberly's most popular class; this one sells out wherever she teaches it! All it takes are 40 – 2½” strips from a purchased precut bundle or strips cut from your own stash, plus one background fabric and the diamond design possibilities are practically endless! Kimberly will teach you how to strip-piece and cut diamond building blocks from strips using either her EZ Jelly Roll Ruler or new Precision Precuts Ruler with no “Y” or set-in seams. You’ll design your own unique Lone Starburst variation quilt! The first part of the class focuses on accurate and efficient cutting and piecing of the diamond units and the latter part of the class will focus on design elements and the almost limitless possibilities for designing your own layout using your diamond units. The real magic comes from the fact that the quilt is assembled with straight-set blocks, not diamond wedges or blocks on point. This is an eye-opening class for anyone who wants to create a one-of-a-kind quilt with a Lonestar twist!

Sylvi Sealy The Starch Hand Applique Method

Applique flower, sample from workshop

The Starch Hand Applique Method

6-hour workshop


Sylvi’s unique prepared edge hand applique technique was born of her frustration with traditional needle turn and backbasting techniques that were difficult to master. A simple flower pattern will be offered to teach you the basics of her method using lots of bright fabrics as found in Kaffe Fassett and similar modern designers’ collections. See examples of Sylvi’s modern Baltimores and other projects at her web site. Come prepared with colorful scraps and a neutral background.
