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 our Workshop Coordinator at wrkshp-coord-894@quakingaspenquiltguild.org for more information.

Art of the Land by Melody Randol

Capture some aspect of the natural world in fabric and thread! Melody Randol shares many of the tricks and techniques she uses in creating her landscape quilts. You will learn how to use photos for reference, strategies for simplifying elements in nature, and ways to use silk organza in your quilts.

Working from photos you love, you will create 1-3 small (no larger than 9” square) quilts. You will work in layers,  using fast and easy fused construction methods and leave with pieces ready to quilt and complete at home. Whether you are new to the joys of quilt-making or an experienced veteran, the day promises to be fun and offer new inroads to capturing the beauty of Mother Nature.

Feathers are Flying by Kathy McNeil

Let’s make one of these beautiful bird wallhangings together. Learn two different methods of appliqué: fused raw edge or the new easy Apliquick method of hand appliqué with turned edges. Your beautiful birds can be made as free objects that will be ready to place on the background scene or a block of your choice. Patterns include background scenes as shown. Both Apliquick hand appliqué or raw edge techniques are suitable for beginners.

You may choose one of these three patterns to be used in class. Pattern fee is $13.95 and may be ordered through Kathy’s Web site: https://www.kathymcneilquilts.com/workshop-info.htm

Herons are 22 x 29 full scene
