We will hold spots for those paying non-electronically only until Sunday, September 9th. After that, your spot will be given to the next person in line. We will be opening this workshop to people outside SDMQG, pending availability, on September 9th.

Improvisational Piecing
Learn different techniques for improvisational piecing and choose one to develop a new project. We’ll guide you through a strategy that will have you making design decisions as you go. Students can begin making ourCall Me Crazy or Just Passing Through quilt or a project of their choice if they already have something in mind. Our patterns and magazines all ship for free to US destinations, so please order in advance to make sure you have what you need for class.

  • Student supplies needed: sewing machine, rotary cutting equipment, an assortment of cotton quilting fabric with different values and hues (small-scale prints, tone-on-tone prints and solids work well; avoid large-scale fabrics), extension cord, thread, seam ripper, notebook or journal, and any supplies you like to have handy when quilting.
  • If students wish to make the Call Me Crazy quilt with their own fabrics, they will need 2 3/4 yards white or other field fabric, 2 1/2 yards total assorted blue (or other color) fabrics and 3/4 yards binding fabric.
  • If students wish to make the Just Passing Through quilt with their own fabrics, they will need 3 3/4 yards solid field fabric and 1 1/2 yards contrasting solid fabric for the splicing and binding fabric.
  • Facility equipment needed: tables and chairs for cutting and sewing
  • Skill level: Adventurous beginner to advanced

Libs Elliott Workshop Registration

We are so excited to be hosting a Libs Elliott workshop on Sunday, December 9 at Quilt in a Day, San Marcos. This will be a full day workshop; 9am-4pm.

Here’s the description from Libs herself:

Embrace the Chaos – An Exercise in Controlled Randomness

Using only paper and pencils – no computers required! – I will walk students through a series of worksheet exercises that mimic the programming language I use to generate my quilt patterns. By using controlled elements in a random way, each participant will end up with a unique quilt pattern layout – no two Chaos Quilts are the same!
As a group, we’ll discuss design flow and tweak our individual layouts. Then we’ll cut fabrics and work on piecing our designs, using provided block-building instructions. At the end of the class, each participant will leave with her/his own random geometric quilt design and will have the knowledge required to complete the project at home.
1 Full-Day Session allows time for drafting, design and initial block construction. Level: All Levels

Just Like Heaven 2015

At this time, we are accepting registration from dues-paying SDMQG members. If there are still seats available, we will open the workshop up to the entire quilting community in the next few weeks.

There are 20 seats available for this workshop, at a cost of $100, which will include a catered lunch.

Registration is easy and uses our two step registration system:

1. Register yourself here.
