About This Workshop

Join piecing experts Sara Bond, Tara Faughnan, and Maria Shell for a 360 degree exploration of contemporary pieced patchwork! Each student will be creating their own medallion style quilt inspired by lessons in color, design, composition, and technique.

Each day students will gather to hear ALL three teacher’s perspectives on a particular subject matter. Students will decide which approach of the three presented they would like to incorporate into their own medallion quilt. For example, each teacher will give a mini lecture on their approach to triangles, the student can then decide to incorporate one, two, or all three perspectives on the triangle into their medallion quilt. Think of it as a la carte quilt making! When lectures are not in session, teachers will be available for small group demos, one on one consults, and more.

Workshop Details

Instructor: Maria Shell
Shell’s quilt compositions are grounded in tradition, meant for the wall, and surprisingly modern. She is an improv quilt designer who likes to control all aspects of the quilt making process. Cut, Press, Stitch, Shape is her quilting motto.

Instructor: Tara Faughnan
Faughnan’s quilts are a juxtaposition of modern meets traditional. She uses simple geometry, complex color interaction and unexpected shifts in composition to find the line that exists somewhere between harmony and discord.

Instructor: Sarah Bond
Sarah Bond is a piecer by preference – it’s her favorite thing to do. She looks at almost every design with her brain tuned to construction and is always thinking about how all her elements will come together. Those elements are inspired and informed by classic quilt elements. She loves complexity and repetition.
