Are you finding the idea of lining up seams and matching perfect points a bit tiresome? Have you been eyeing those lovely improvisational quilts all over the internet and wondering how people do that? Or do you just want to do something to break out of a creative rut? This is a fun and easy class that will teach you how to piece your own “improvisational” basketweave crib or lap size quilt. You don’t need to worry too much about cutting fabric the right size or sewing perfect seams. Just come, have fun, explore color, and leave with your own, unique quilt top. 

The basketweave is a great opportunity to play with value and the interaction between colors. It's also very scrap friendly and works well with upcycled fabrics.

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You have a few projects under your belt. You aready know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to play with the basics. This is a beginner friendly class.

Supplies:

About the Instructor:

Stacey Sharman grew up in rural Virginia where a favorite family outing was going to antique malls, auctions, and yard sales. She was always intrigued by the history and the mystery of discarded, lost, or abandoned objects. Channeling that into her work, she found great satisfaction in creating something lovely and new from what others may see as useless. The art of creating patchwork mimics the art of life: creating the most beautiful thing you can with what you have at hand.
