Saturday, March 14, 2020 — Color Interaction – Playing with Solids

UPDATE — THIS CLASS IS NOW FULL. Please put your name on our waitlist and we will contact you if there’s an opening.

Do you love working with solids, or are you afraid of them? Do you have your favorite colors, but don’t really know how to expand beyond those? Or are you just curious about how to take a basic color palette and make it dance?

Tara Faughnan is a master of color! She loves using many colors at once, repeating them in seemingly endless combinations.

In Tara’s words …

Playing with color is one of the most rewarding aspects of quiltmaking. It can be fun, intuitive, challenging and at times frustrating. In this six-hour class we will explore how colors play off one another, delve into the importance of value, and learn tips for when you get stuck. Students will start with a variety of quick exercises, and move on to small color studies that can be combined into a larger quilt.

  • 11:30 am – 6:00 pm, with an optional 1-hour break
  • Greenwood Senior Center, Seattle
  • $78
  • Open to Seattle Modern Quilt Guild members only

Sunday, March 15, 2020 — Handwork Sampler – Hand Piecing and Hand Quilting

Get two for the price of one in this combination class that will teach you both Hand Piecing and Hand Quilting. Hand piecing offers a relaxing alternative when you’re away from your machine, and big stitch hand quilting (perfection not required!) is a great way to add dimension and a homemade touch to your quilts.

In Tara’s words …

In this class we will cover the basics of hand piecing and move on to an introduction to hand quilting. Instruction will include creating templates and marking fabric for sewing, as well as how to incorporate hand quilting to add depth and interest to your quilts.

  • 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, with a 1-hour lunch break
  • Quilting Mayhem, Snohomish
  • $75
  • Open to Seattle Modern Quilt Guild members only
