IN-PERSON RETREAT: Inspired by Architecture
March 17, 2024 - March 22, 2024
EMPTY SPOOLS SEMINARS: This is a rare opportunity to take my very popular Inspired by Architecture workshop in a multi-day retreat format! You will finish a small quilt in the time we have together.
Working from photos of architectural elements, I will guide you through the steps to design a minimal, modern fabric quilt… inspired by architecture! You will learn the quilt-as-you-go method, sewing the top pieces, batting and backing simultaneously. You’ll then add texture and complexity with my unique approach to walking foot machine quilting where the quilting lines become a major design element. Learn to connect multiple quilted units with a great gusset join technique, then add a simple face binding for a modern finish.
This workshop is a five-day in-person event. We will have the luxury of nearly a week of workshop time to design and develop a beautiful modern quilt in a gorgeous setting.
Empty Spools Seminars is hosting this retreat at the scenic Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA.
The dates for the workshop are March 17–22, 2024. Registration for this March 2024 retreat will open Monday, May 22nd, 2023! Visit the Empty Spools Seminars website, and then click on the Session 3 link on their site:
