Taking Shapes-Modern Wedge
Friday March 26 and Saturday 27
3:30 pm-6;30 pm
Virtual Workshop with Kathy Doughty, New South Wales, Australia
In this class, Kathy will work through a variety of ways to use wedge rulers. Working without a pattern, participants will learn the difference between the degrees, how to enlarge and reduce, fussy cut and more. Repeating shapes in the structure of quilts allows for greater understanding of fabric relationships. Participants use whatever fabric they have on hand. The workshop includes an hour conversation about selecting fabric, creating interest and working with contrast. Then Kathy will move to techniques and demonstrate how the ideas are actually used in practice. The students will enjoy using the wedge ruler to create simple shapes in repetition, to create lines and spaces in quilts that move the eye around, learn a process for organizing fabrics to achieve interesting results, practice working with value and contrast, and learn tips and techniques for piecing.

This popular class is based on Dresden Neighborhood design by Kim Lapacek at Persimon Designs. We create our own unique town with all sorts of fun and fanciful buildings which start out as a Dresden Plate. Options are given for either 20 house neighborhoods, or 12 house neighborhoods. Templates for both are available. The 12 house version is great for working with the color wheel, and is created more quickly. Each student will need to purchase their own pattern.
Each student will need to purchase their own pattern ($9) from the instructor.
