DAY 1 (Monday) -- Color & Composition 

Do you want to better understand the role of color and composition in design? You will begin the day learning analytical methods for using color with confidence through case studies as well as through individual and group color explorations. 

The afternoon will focus on composition, one of the most powerful tools in design. We will explore elements of composition including proportion, static and dynamic forms and negative space through a series of explorations using solids. 

Students with or without design backgrounds are welcome in this class. You will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the role of color in your quilts and with a renewed excitement about making quilts. 

  • Student supplies: Cutting tools, a wide assortment of quilting fabric scraps for color explorations (smaller pieces are fine), a minimum of four solid fat quarters (one white, one black and two of any color you choose), notebook or journal, glue stick and any supplies you like to have handy.

  • Skill level: Beginner to advance.

  • Fabric Ruler
  • This is a no-sew, design-centered class

DAY 2 (Tuesday) --Transparency Quilts

Learn how to use traditional piecing techniques to create quilts with the appearance of transparency. Discover how distinguishing and balancing the subtleties of color in your fabric choices makes all of the difference and allows you to achieve remarkable results. We will learn through case studies as well as by small-scale transparency explorations. Students will begin individual projects in the remaining hours of class. 

Suggested patterns include:

  • Swatch: Free download from our site
  • Jewel Box: Available in Modern Quilts Illustrated #8. We suggest preparation of the templates ahead of time.
  • Local Color: Block pattern available in Modern Quilts Illustrated #3. We suggest preparation of the templates ahead of time.

Students, please don’t pre-cut your pieces for the project as the design discussions we’ll have may really change your thinking about fabric selection. It’s okay to audition fabrics ahead of time, but bring a range of options because more often than not, students will be thinking differently about their choices after the morning discussions and explorations.

  • Student supplies: sewing machine, rotary cutting equipment, a wide assortment of tone-on-tone or near solid prints or solids in a broad range of values and hues (the more options you can bring, the better – since everyone will be working on different projects it’s hard to say exactly what each of you will need, so bring what you can!), extension cord, thread, seam ripper, notebook or journal, and any supplies you like to have handy when quilting.

DAY 3 (Wednesday) -- Magic Inch Quilts

Learn several variations of our most popular improvisational piecing technique and make one of the six projects featured in Magic Inch Quilts. Endlessly flexible and fun, this technique allows you to customize any of the patterns to any size. Projects include the quilts Chorus Line, Local Hero, Pick-up Sticks, Splice of Life, Whiskers and the Latticework pillow. You can see thumbnails of these quilts here.

  • Student supplies: sewing machine, rotary cutting equipment, extension cord, thread, seam ripper, notebook or journal and any supplies you like to have handy when quilting.

  • The required publication for the class project, Magic Inch Quilts, is available here.

  • Each student can choose any project from Magic Inch Quilts. The material requirements for the projects are detailed in the publication, so make sure to order it at least 10 days in advance so you can come prepared to sew. This technique is stash friendly, so you may have what you need already! If you’d prefer a kit, consider our ever-popular Whiskers quilt kit.

  • Fabric Ruler

  • Skill level: Beginner to advanced

DAY 4 (Thursday) -- Simple Modern Kaleidoscopes

Create stunning, yet simple, kaleidoscope blocks using bilaterally symmetrical fabrics. You will learn how bilaterally symmetrical fabrics work to create kaleidoscope blocks based on our Crown Jewels quilt. Please purchase your pattern and, if desired, kits, fabrics and/or optional templates at least 10 days before the workshop at either your local quilt shop or through ModernQuiltStudio.com.

  • Student supplies: sewing machine, rotary cutting equipment, extension cord, thread, seam ripper, notebook or journal, fine Sharpie for marking on template plastic, clear or frosted tape and any supplies you like to have handy when quilting. Please bring one or more sheets of frosted template plastic (clear plastic also works but is a bit harder to work with than frosted plastic.) If you prefer cutting with acrylic templates,  you can order our Crown Jewels templates here.

  • The required pattern for the class project, Crown Jewels, in our Dot Crazy publication. You can order it here.

  • Materials needed to make a 42″x42″ wall hanging:
    • An assortment of bilaterally symmetrical cotton quilting fabrics (with motifs that have “mirror” images— if you were to draw a line on the center of the repeat, the left and right sides of the line would be exactly the same). To see examples of bilaterally symmetrical fabrics, please visit our Pinterest page. Every bilaterally symmetrical fabric is different but make sure that you have at least eight repeats per block that are 9″ long and 6″ wide. The project is a wall hanging made of nine blocks. 

  • Fabric Ruler

• Yardage of 2 contrasting solid fabrics as background fabrics for your kaleidoscopes

• 3/4 yard of a lighter solid 

• 1 1/4  yards of a slightly darker solid for the background and binding.

  • Skill level: Beginner to advanced

DAY 5 (Friday) -- Rediscovering Your Stash

Again and again, students tell us this is the single most useful class they have ever taken. Gain color confidence and plan creative ways to use your stash in this no-sew class! Mix a big dose of color theory with an in-depth discussion of combining patterns and a pinch of working with large-scale fabrics and you’ll end up with a plan for a project that you want to make from fabrics you already have. In addition, you’ll have consultations about how to freshen up your stash while learning how to use fabrics that you love but find perplexing. You’ll see new possibilities for working with your stash and leave the workshop with beautiful palettes and plans for your next few projects. Bring patterns you love and fabrics you’d like to use or are unsure how to use and you’ll be amazed at how you’ll be able to pull it all together. 

  • Student supplies needed: An open mind and as large an assortment of cotton quilting fabric as you can haul! Try to include different values and hues, small-scale prints, tone-on-tone prints, solids, stripes, batiks, large-scale fabrics and especially fabrics you love but find challenging to use. Small quantities are fine. You’ll also need a notebook or journal

  • The required publication for the class is Rediscovering Your Stash. You can order it here

  • Fabric Ruler

  • Skill level: all levels
