Classes


In response to inquiries from several students, we are presenting a class developed by Judy Doenias years ago to provide a place where you can explore your creativity. Once a month for three months we will meet (if you love it, we can continue beyond that time). Judy will present a challenge for you to explore during the upcoming month and ask you to present your results to the class on the following month. It can be based on a quilting design (e.g. log cabin, etc.), it can be to explore a shape (e.g. squares, etc.), it can be to create your own design based on simple parameters, or anything that her mind can conjure. If you are ready and willing to participate which includes doing your homework, this inspiring class will elevate your quilting experience.

This is one of the most intricate quilts recently created. If you have signed up for this class you probably have seen our sample, the book, and/or the profusion of images on the Internet. It is made from rosettes constructed from five different shapes tessellated and repeated throughout in an extremely complicated manner. The process of construction, however, is pretty simple. It is English paper pieced (EPP) an old method which requires paper templates for each piece around which fabric is wrapped and basted and then whip stitched together.

The log cabin quilt: a perennial favorite made from strips, can be made in so many ways that you can spend months or years exploring its variations. Judy Doenias has designed a new pattern (but is it really new or does she not know about someone else doing it). She would like to see you create your own quilt using this pattern with your own color choices and settings. This class will meet for three weeks.

Quilters who have made only one quilt as well as experienced quiltmakers can join in the fun. .
