11am-4pm Sunday, November 15th @ Circa15 Fabric Studio in Kirkland
Explore the merging of traditional and improvisational patchwork techniques with the log cabin block. Katie Pedersen, author of Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts will guide you through the techniques and skills needed for creating a unique and modern log cabin block. Learn variations in block design, her process of building blocks out, and the secondary designs multiple blocks create. While we’re at it, we’ll get friendly with the design wall, touch on color and value theory, and cover the advantages of constructing a block that is either precise in piecing, or more willy-nilly.
Monday, November 16th from 11am-4pm @ Circa 15 Fabric Studio in Kirkland
Interested in creating a modern quilt or pillow with improvisational techniques but don’t know where to start?

No two will be the same.
Saturday, December 12th from 11-4pm @ Circa 15 Fabric Studio in Kirkland
The traditional technique of piecing quilt blocks on paper is well known for its precise results. Sharp triangles and sleek curves are easily a stitch away. Learn and practice the fundamentals of basic paper piecing while creating all types of star blocks.
This is a great workshop to refine skills in choosing fabric and where to place it in a quilt pattern. We’ll cover how color, value and prints work and drive design as we create our own unique blocks.
