Class Descriptions

Holes As Design Element
(6-hour hands-on piecing, DMS)

Traditionally, holes in a quilt are evidence of poor care, rough handling and damage. In this class, Birgit will show you how to incorporate holes in your quilts on purpose – as design element! There are different ways of doing this, and you'll gain a new view not only at but also through your quilts!

Fabulous Freehand Fun for Blocks, Borders & Backgrounds (3- or 6-hour hands-on longarm OR 2-hour longarm demo)

You have outgrown stippling and meandering and have come to enjoy the fun of freehand all-over quilting? Well, then you are ready to take the next step. In this hands-on class you will experience the potential of your favorite freehand fillers – and of those that Birgit will show you. Find out how to use freehand filler elements for continuous-line block and border quilting for spectacular results.

Rulers & Templates Gone Wild! (3- or 6-hour hands-on longarm)

Are you ready for fresh quilting ideas but you don't know where to find them? Well, they are right there within yourself! Let's play with some ordinary rulers and unveil your design potential by combining them with your favorite filler or motif patterns. This will take your creativity to a new level. Be brave and inventive in your quilting – and have FUN!

Wholecloth Quilting – Efficient Yet Spectacular (6-hour hands-on longarm OR 2-hour longarm demo)

Have you ever been approached by a customer who ordered wholecloth quilting but was reluctant to pay the heirloom rate? Join Birgit in this hands-on class and get to know her way of wholecloth quilting for customers without up-front marking. You will learn how to draft your ideas on paper first and then use this draft as a reference while quilting away...

 
 

Triangle Fun (6-hour hands-on piecing, DMS)

Do you like to play? And do you love – surprises? Well, then you may want to join in the fun and play with a bunch of triangles to make a contemporary wallhanging. Choose 14 to 16 fabrics forming a gradation from color A to color B (about 8“ WOF per fabric) and cut two 60° triangles from each fabric (6“ side length). Are you brave enough to add a wild fabric to your selection for that additional interest? Bring your triangles and ALL left over fabric along to class and let the fun begin! We'll cut, switch, stitch and cut the triangles several times for a surprising result...
