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.

Diane Kirkhart

Resilience

Millefiori (Thousand Flowers)


Diane Kirkhart will teach us one Millefiori rosette (block), which is a part of the quilt known as La Passacaglia as found in the book, Millefiori Quilts, by Willyne Hammerstein. The techniques taught will work for all English Paper Piecing. Although the focus of the workshop will be on hand piecing, machine piecing will be discussed. Using acrylic templates, she will show us how to fussy cut for this style of quilt. The quilt shown here is one rosette, Resilience, which makes a great wall quilt by itself. If you would like to make the full quilt, the one rosette we make can be the beginning of your first Millefiori Quilt! A pattern for one rosette will be provided at the workshop.
