Classes


This beginner class is an introduction into the wonderful, creative, playful world of quilts with half-rectanlge triangles that give lots of motion to a design. In this class you will learn to cut fabric using AnglePlay templates. These templates are available for use in class if you have not purchased a set of your own. Learn the magic of AnglePlay and make half-rectangle triangles with no stress! The Meteor pattern incorporates traditional piecing and AnglePlay blocks with a modern layout that deconstructs the block from an intricate pinwheel to a basic four-patch. Andi will be providing her pattern called Meteor to all enrolled students!

This scrappy traditional quilt was inspired by the designers experiences in New York City. Keeping your options open, letting ideas, memories, colors and tools collide into this project using up to 150 fabrics and making them live in harmony together to express joy! Required book: Double Wedding Ring Quilts by Victoria Findlay Wolfe and the sample in the classroom is on page 36 of the required book. However, you may choose any of the patterns in this wonderful book to work on in class. Go scrappy with your fabrics or choose a more controlled palette. You are encouraged to stretch your imagination and perhaps try a technique or two that you haven?t done before. The patterns in this book use paper-piecing, templates, and even slashed fabric if you wish.

If you have a favorite photo that you want to turn into a piece of art, well here?s your chance. You will be shown how to print your photo onto fabric, the steps to set the ink so it will last forever, and then create a unique wall hanging. You can incorporate trapunto, thread painting, beads, whatever you want. The sky is the limit. Just let loose and be creative! I have tested a ton of brands of fabric sheets and by far, EQ Printables is the best out there. Do Not Substitute! If you take the new "Photo Print to Fabric" class first on how to print your photo properly and create the special effects it would be extremely beneficial.

People say eyes are the windows to the soul. When you create eyes, you want to depict the personality of the subject you are working on, weather it is a human or an animal. Take the mystery out of creating eyes with this magical class that will teach you how to thread paint an eye and create an eye using mixed media. You will become addicted! In this class you will have the opportunity to do six different eyes. You will create the eye with mixed media and then create the same eye with thread painting. This will give you the opportunity to learn the different types of eyes, for example a horse has horizontal pupils, cats have a very narrow vertical pupil and so on.
