Medallion Improv!

I’m excited to be offering a class beginning on April 24, at one of my favorite local quilt shops. Inspirations, in Hills, IA, will host in Nancy’s wonderful upstairs classroom.

Sparkle. 48″. Finished January 2014.

Join me for five fun weeks learning the tricks of medallion quilts. This design-as-you-go class will show you strategies and techniques to customize a medallion quilt. Whether you love modern style, traditional, or somewhere in between, your imagination and favorite fabrics will create a quilt unique to you!

You’ll learn how to create a center block to serve as your focal point and inspiration; choose and size borders to enhance the center block and each other; and lots of tricks for dealing with color, shape, value, balance, and unity.

This class is for the experienced quilter who isn’t afraid to design her own quilts or change patterns to suit her own vision.

fabrics from new or stash; yardage depends on your design
piecing thread
sewing machine
pins and other basic notions
rotary cutter and rulers
calculator, but don’t let math scare you!

You can find some examples of my medallion creations in my galleries.

Classes will meet from 9:30-11:30 am on Thursdays.

    Love that pattern and the “improv” concept!!! I’m sure it will be a great class……a bit too far from me, though (living just West of La Crosse!).
