Open Enrolment Workshop: Courthouse Colourplay

Edited April 10: This workshop is SOLD OUT, thank you! If you'd like to put your name on a list for future dates, please email me (address in my profile there in the upper left side bar).

Happy Spring, Friends! I've been hearing from more and more lovely quilters who would like the opportunity to take a Zoom workshop with me, but they are not guild members, or they haven't had luck with the dates offered thus far.

I thought I'd simply go ahead the simplest way possible: choose a date and ask folks to use a Paypal/Me link to forward the registration fee! Let's try it!

lap size 49" x 70"


Explore the possibilities of colour expression and free-cutting while you create this wonky, nested Courthouse Step quilt (reminiscent of paper lanterns) in your own personal colour story. We’ll work intuitively from the centre out, creating a dynamic quilt with loads of personality. There will be no squaring up with this one -- instead I'll show you how to “build out”, finding the fit between adjacent blocks and using up all of our scraps in the process. As in all of my workshops, I will share loads of tips while encouraging all students to find confidence in new techniques that will inform their pursuit of designing original quilts. Put your traditional quilting skills to work and explore improvisational design and piecing in a fun, supportive environment.

Quilt size: wall hanging to lap size depending on the amount of fabric you start with. A collection of 18-25 F8's for wall hanging/baby quilt or 18-25 FQ's for large lap to single size (solids or reads-as-solids) plus 1 FQ contrast colour for block centres is recommended.

You are cordially invited to my Courthouse Colourplay Zoom Workshop with live instruction and limited enrolment.
