Next weekend, I am teaching a two day VIRTUAL version of my workshop Circle & Curve Sampler in partnership with the Pratt Museum in Homer, Alaska.
Here are the details & sign up logistics.
Most people think of line when they think of my work. This is true. I like lines.
Still I have made many, many quilts with curves. In fact, I have been sitting on a lot of them for a while.
Mostly, because I have big hopes that I will be motivated to write a book about the techniques I use to build my curved quilts.
The quilts keep coming, but the book has remained in my head.
This blog post is an attempt to share them all. Even the ones that are in progress.
This is a history of the circle and curve quilts I have made up until this exact moment in time.
Here are a few details about the workshop.The workshop starts with the basic simple two fabric curve aka improv linear curve.
From there, we explore what I call a braided curve. I named it that after the many rivers and creeks in Alaska that are braided.
Once students get the feel for creating improv linear curves we begin our exploration of Log Cabin circles.
The adventurous quilter might even try inserting pieced bits into their curves.
I hope you have enjoyed this history of my circle and curve quilts.
And better yet, maybe you will join me for a weekend of creating your own curves? I would love to have you fill one of my Hollywood Squares!
