April 8 -- Intentional Large-Scale Paper Piecing-Magic Spark (supply list)
Full day (9:30-3:30) online workshop via Zoom
Magic Spark serves as a great introduction to modern, large scale paper piecing. Paper piecing with larger pieces of fabric is in many ways more difficult than paper piecing with small pieces that are more easily handled. Learn some new tricks to make large scale paper piecing work while also learning to place your fabric intentionally to enhance the pattern design. Explore various layouts for a unique quilt top.
Please note that, for your convenience, the supply list includes fabric requirements for making one "spark" from four block parts for class participation, as well as fabric requirements for completing the full pattern. You will need to purchase the pattern prior to the workshop.
Fee: Members - $ 60 + pattern ($10); Non-members $70 + pattern ($10).
Pattern is available as a PDF: https://duringquiettime.com/product/magic-spark-quilt-pattern or https://www.etsy.com/listing/613086527/magic-spark-quilt-pattern-pdf OR as a paper pattern: https://www.etsy.com/listing/615189531/magic-spark-quilt-pattern-paper
Each "spark" is made from 4 blocks.

Foolproof Boho Mandala YES! You can!
Katie emphasized that this is a “playshop” not a “work”shop, make it fun for yourself. No stress. She has modified and condensed her 2-5 day workshop in order for our Guild to present it in 1 ½ days!
“You can do this! Show up ready to play while learning how to draft, color, and finish a mandala.”
While you will not need your sewing machine during this “playshop,” you will need ½ - 1 yard Kona PFD (prepared for dying) fabric, aloe gel, Inktense or watercolor pencils, small paintbrushes, needles and variety of threads (see the complete materials list for details).
In addition to making a good start on your mandala, you will also gain a new energy and confidence in your creative process.
