Do you love quilting, but want to free yourself from the tradition of using patterns? Join Chris Bowen and learn to take a more artistic approach to quilt design! Modern improv quilt making is an intuitive process that moves beyond design and wonky blocks. This workshop will show you how to get curvy with your patchwork, abandon straight lines and embrace applique!
There will be homework in-between two session, so be prepared to do some extra sewing (like we had to twist your arm!).
Skill requirements: Basic machine sewing skills and previous quilt making experience required. You don't need to be an expert by any means, but we don't have time to cover the basics of quilt making during this workshop. If you would like to learn the basics, we do offer a Quilt Making for Beginners course.
The "improvisational" part of this workshop means that we can't tell you exactly how many pieces of each fabric you will need and how wide your blocks need to be.
All materials purchase from The Makehouse will be discounted by 20%
Equipment requirements: Please note that we provide a sewing machine for you to use in the studio, but we encourage you to bring your machine from home so that you can work with the one you're used to. If you'd like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the foot pedal/power cord and arrive 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.
