Join us for five days of nonstop learning and fun. You’ll gain confidence in understanding color theory, improve your understanding of how prints interact in a quilt, become more decisive in assembling palettes, learn how to piece curves and understand cutting and sewing techniques necessary to produce stunning kaleidoscope quilts.
You’ll learn how to cut and piece precisely and how to create new patterns within a quilt to make your kaleidoscope mesmerizing. We’ll start small and work our way up so you can master the basic before you start your big kaleidoscope. We’ll also discuss using repeats to create decorative borders as well as planning how to quilt your final piece. Through a series of lecture, exercises and one-on-one critiques, you’ll be able to learn and create at your own pace.
All students who enjoy cutting and sewing with precision are welcome including adventurous beginners. Sewing with a consistent ¼’ seam allowance will help you to be successful with this technique. Weeks will share a link to a YouTube tutorial to help you plan the fabrics you’ll be bringing to the retreat so everyone will be successful.
