About the Event

IN PERSON: Two sessions: Saturday, February 24 and Saturday, March 2, 10AM - 3PM

This class will be held at Bay Quilts

Create this beautiful block by block quilt that straddles the American and Japanese quilting aesthetic while you learn a ton of important quilting skills.

Skills taught: 

  • curves
  • Y-seams
  • matching curves and seams. 

Secondary skill: hiding imperfection, Lol.

In other words: perfect seams are secondary to color and overall cohesiveness. Sondra will teach you how to make it perfect, if that is what you are after. More importantly, she will also help you learn about color, value and hue  in a block and in an overall quilt, if that is what you want.

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You have used a sewing machine and have a made a quilt or two before. You already have some piecing and quilting skills and are ready to learn more.

Supplies: You will receive the fabric requirements once you sign up. Bay Quilts is glad to help you select fabrics for your quilt. 

Sewing Machines and Equipment: You will need to bring your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies to class. The specific tools you need will be included in the supply list. PLEASE NOTE: On the day of the class, you will need to purchase plastic templates available exclusively at Bay Quilts.

About the instructor: 

Alexandra Von Burg (Sondra), has been making quilts and teaching workshops for 25 years in the Bay area. Her focus has alway been on fast and fun, which sometimes equals aerobic. She has an MFA in fine art from Pratt Institute, which has given her a foundation in design and color theory, as well as a fearlessness in creating her own method for making unique blocks and quilts.

Location:

This class is being held at the Bay Quilts located at 5327 Jacuzzi St. 3-C, Richmond, CA 94804. Bay Quilts is run by Sally Davey and her daughter, Abbey-Shane  a team of lifelong artists and crafters who have been in the quilting industry for over 30 years. They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together.  This unique fabric shop is so much more than a store - from consignments quilts and gifts, and cloth figures to monthly gallery exhibitions and artist receptions to workshops.  Bay Quilts is a sanctuary for creatives of all skill level. Bay Quilts is generously offering a 10% discount to students on the day of the class.

The classroom space is on the 2nd level so you will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs. There is a convenient caddy so you don't have to carry your equipment up the stairs.

Cancellation Policy:

Class fees are non-refundable. However you may transfer the class to a friend if you let us know in advance.
