Patch Reef Park Community Center

In this workshop, you will learn the benefits of large-scale piecing and constructing oversized blocks. We’ll discuss the roots of large scale piecing, the effect of reducing design elements and the simplification of the overall design of a quilt. Using Heather’s Fly Away quilt pattern, students will learn how to increase the scale of both traditional and modern block designs, how to successfully manage large cuts of fabric and large pattern pieces, how to work with large areas of negative space, and tips and tricks on fabric selection, cutting, and construction methods for working in this manner.

Students will

  • learn how to increase the scale of quilt blocks using graph paper and simple math

  • learn how to manage large cuts of fabric and large pattern pieces

  • learn how to work with large areas of negative space

  • learn cutting, and construction methods for working in this manner
