Diane has sewn for many years but allowed her sewing machine to collect dust for one reason or another. She found her groove again with the modern quilt movement. In her own words, "Now that I am retired, I am enjoying sewing again and have fallen in love with modern quilts. "
While attending a Camp Stitchalot workshop last summer, Dan Rouse of Piece and Press showed Diane how to create simple improv curves that led to the beginnings of her Twilight quilt. It is this same technique she'll talk about and demonstrate Saturday.
If you want to step into the world of improvisational curved piecing, you'll need to bring the following items with you:
- 4 coordinated fat quarters (solids or prints, or a combination of both)
- rotary cutter, ruler, and cutting mat
- sewing machine, thread, etc.
- iron and ironing board/surface
