About the Event

Have you been wanting to learn how to upcycle clothing into a quilt? Does the idea of working with silk excite or scare you? Is your scrap heap threatening to take over your sewing area? Then this workshop is for you. Julia McLeod's Smithereens' quilt block works perfectly with 8 neckties and a long sleeve shirt or you can use other scraps from your stash. It comes together quickly and easily and has a dynamic and improvisational appearance. Source your fabrics from your closet, a secondhand shop or your stash.

In this class, you'll learn:

  • How to work with up-cycled fabrics, especially silks that require some added stability
  • How to construct Julia's Smithereens' block
  • Ways to arrange the Smithereens' block to create a variety of different overall quilt patterns

The class sample is three blocks by four blocks and measures 22.5” x 30.5”. You can add more blocks or a border to make a bigger quilt.

This workshop will be recorded and made available to class participants for 2 weeks following the lesson.

Born and raised in England, Julia worked as a menswear textile designer in the woolen- and worsted mills of Yorkshire and Scotland, and later for a company on Savile Row, in the heart of London’s bespoke tailoring industry. Julia moved to New York City in the early 1990’s, and America has been her home ever since.
