Patchwork Recycled Fabrics for Quilting
Learn how to turn your fabric into patchwork with improvisational quilt maker Eliza Fernand. Students will learn the basics of constructing patchwork and how to improvise on traditional quilt patterns. This is a fast-paced technique where anything goes and all mistakes are on purpose. In the American Quilt-making tradition, we will use scraps of discarded clothing and bedding to design wall hangings, curtains, or bedcovers. Quilting, tying, basting, and binding techniques will also be covered so that students can make a finished project. We will begin with instruction and some sewing machine basics for any beginners, and will have plenty of time to experiment and sew, and have a quick show and tell at the end of class. Each student will go home with their own patchwork and an illustrated zine with instructions for another patchwork project. This is great for beginner quilters to start and is a great opportunity for experienced quilters to break free of patterns and rules!
- It's always best to learn on your own machine, If you don't have one to bring, no problem, we will have a few to share.
- Fabric scraps and old clothes that are made with woven fabrics of any weight, but not knitted (stretchy) fabrics.
- Fabric scissors, or if you have them bring a rotary cutter and mat.
Beginner to Advanced, some machine knowledge is a plus
