Large Scale Piecing Workshop with the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild

Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild
Oshtemo Branch Library
7265 W Main Street
Kalamazoo, Michigan 49009

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.

The workshop is full. To be added to the waiting list, please email glmodernquilter at gmail dot com.
