Quilt Jazz Workshop by Rosalie Dace
Sep 27, Sep 28, 2014
10am - 4pm. A 6-hour hands-on workshop presented by Rosalie Dace, 2015 Quilt National Juror. There are striking and exciting similarities between jazz and improvisational quilt making. Discover what they are and how to put them to use in making your contemporary quilts. So if freedom and fun are what you need in your quilt making, this is the class for you. Learn to free yourself of all those tight restrictions that threaten to choke your creativity while you create a colorful and exuberant piece, without losing the essence of a quilt. After studying pictures and other examples, you will be guided in a sensitive, step by step process to help you breathe new life into your blocks and put them together to make a stunning quilt top. Discussions will emphasize color, pattern making, repetition and rhythm. Techniques will include free hand cutting and machine piercing to make pieces fit. Your quilt making will Never be the same again. Class size is limited. Lunch is included. Call or email QNdairybarn.org.
