Workshop: Baskets on a Crazy Quilt

June 21 @ 9:00 am 3:00 pm

Within perfectly squared up blocks are the patches as individually shaped as they were in antique quilts. Make a crazy quilt with a fool proof method, without using foundation fabric and minimum waste of fabrics. A beginner friendly block which can be useful for art quilters and intermediate quilters for many other applications with endless possibilities, including as a base for improv baskets.

How can you make a crazy quilt crazier? Add a few scrappy baskets on top of it! 

In this workshop, early on the focus will be on fabric selection and design development. You will go through the exercise to find balance with textures and colors of small to large scale prints. Working with solids, the emphasis will be on value and contrast. You will learn to make crazy patch background with freeform blocks and string pieced baskets and their handles. Not interested in baskets? Try bowls, vases or something else. This workshop is a place to learn about scale, contrast, value, and selecting just the right fabric to brighten up the space.
