Quilt Class

I like to teach quiltmaking using a sampler quilt format. I think it helps students ‘study’ the various techniques that are useful in quiltmaking. I also think that knowing various techniques makes quiltmakers more confident and able to figure out block construction without a pattern.

Some student work:

I wrote about Alice’s Sampler in 2007. She used batiks to make it and it just glows.

Beth’s Sampler using two color fabric choices:

Beth's Sampler
Beth’s Sampler

Didn’t she do a nice job? This can be a really challenging color choice, because the maker doesn’t have much to work with in terms of creating contrast. Beth did an excellent job.
