Workshops

Hill & Valley Log Cabins

We present the concept for the 2 goes-inta 4 goes-inta 8 log blocks for both the straight and curved effect. We present a thorough discussion of the construction technique, using nothing but rectangles. We make a simple table runner using the 4 in 8 log cabin block.

Remarkable Rectangles (Weaving patterns turned to quilts)

We present the basic weaving Chariot Wheel block and the various quilts that can be made. We show both the design process and the construction technique, showing that weaving quilts can be made from simple strata (strip sets) or just plain rectangles. The students take the Chariot Wheel and make a pre-designed quilt or design one of their own.

Well Behaved Bargellos

We present the basic construction process for making disciplined (good behavior) Bargellos. We pick a particular Bargello block and show the various quilts and wall hangings that can be made. The students take the Bargello block and make a pre-designed quilt or design one of their own.
