Workshops

Workshops are a great way to learn new designs and techniques from our guest speakers. Most workshops are on the Friday after the regular Guild meeting from 10 AM to 4 PM and held at Boulder Valley Christian Church. The cost varies by instructor. Workshop details and supply lists will become available as the plans are finalized.

Contact Jackie Vujcich at wrkshp-coord-894@quakingaspenquiltguild.org for information on upcoming workshops.

Come Play with Me by Dianne Hire

Class Description: Need to lighten up? Not having any quilting fun? Tired of prissy little piecing? Then this workshop’s for you. Improvisational and intuitive, we’ll play liberating games at your sewng machine, allow creative juices to flow. We’ll slice and dice fabrics, trade slivers of blocks, hunt for the bright colors just begging for a place to land in a quilt. Return home with a few oxymoron blocks, in random order.

Note: Dianne recommends getting her book Quilters PLAYTIME. It is out-of-print but available through Amazon.com (from $25.94).

Vivacious Curvy Squares by Dianne Hire

Class description: SQUARE C U R V E S??? Huh? Exactly what does that mean?? Create easy, template fee, intuitively designed squares into a motion filled wall hanging that is fast to assemble and in three optional designs: broken circles, randomly curved squares, or meandering, dancing curves. If you use basic bold brights in nearly solid fabrics, the quilt is exceptional. By the end of the day you may have your Curvy Squares completely sewn together and ready to quilt.

Note: Dianne recommends ordering her book Vivacious Curvy Quilts from AQS ($7.96, AQS member price). She’ll be happy to autograph your book.
