Intuitive Piecing with Solids with Lynn Harris
When using solids, the emphasis is placed on the shape of each piece of fabric. The lines and shapes become the focus of the quilt rather than the print of a fabric. The mood of the quilt is set by your piecing and color choice, not by a style of print. Working with free-form, improvisational construction, students will create their own, original quilts using easy-to-learn design concepts and techniques including curves, triangles, small wedge shapes, and more! This design class is good for the beginning and advanced, traditional, modern, and art quilter. Come and join the fun as Lynn shows you easy methods for creating your own original quilts.
Note: Must have basic sewing machine knowledge.
Note: Machines will be provided for in-class use.
Bring a total of 3 yards of solid-colored fabrics. This is an approximate amount of fabric. You know how you like to sew, and how much fabric you like to have available. You can work with predominantly lights, mid-tones or darks; you can work with bright colors or dull colors. Regardless of your predominant tone, include some accent colors and bring colors you like to work with. Fat quarters and small pieces work well.
