Upcoming Workshops & Events


With Abby Vargas

Sat May 6th 9 - 4 

Starting with your inspiration, Abby will begin with a sketching exercise to open your intuitive creative process. Abby will share her approach to quilt block design using low-tech tools, traditional and non-traditional piecing techniques. She will guide you through the process of designing your own block based on your block piecing skill level. After the sketching exercise, she will discuss different blocks created for her Exquisite Quilt collaboration and tricky areas to consider when designing patterns by hand. Abby will lead students in drafting their own pattern and presenting 3 piecing options: 1. Creating your own templates/rotary cutting plan; 2. Interfacing templates for curvy/precise piecing; and 3. Applique techniques for complicated shapes. This class is great for all design skill levels from beginners to advanced designers who want to collaborate on new techniques. Prerequisite: Students should be knowledgeable on how to sew and assemble straight line and curvy blocks.
