Class Description

Creativity and Complex Curves

Learning to add curved piecing to your quilt compositions is like being given the keys to the universe.

In this workshop, you start by making a curvy-pieced quadrant quilt of your own design. You translate simple doodles into block designs and transfer the line work to freezer paper for making patterns. You then walk through the steps for making a fabric version of your drawings. In the second half of the workshop, you move to a larger sized composition with more complex curves.

To finish, Patricia teaches you how to make your own curved templates for quilts with repeated design elements. By the end of the workshop, you will have the confidence to add curves to your future quilt projects.

Patricia Belyea, co-owner of Okan Arts, takes joy in teaching quilters how to incorporate curves into their quilt designs. She has taught curved piecing across the US, in Canada, and in the UK. Her first book about quilting, East-Meets-West Quilts, released in 2017

Class size is limited to 12 students.
