Gyleen X Fitzgerald - Maryland
Play Modern with Tumbling Blocks, Full Day Workshop

Friday, October 13, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

It’s fast, it’s quick, it’s geometric and it’s free-style piecing with control. We will start with the thought of having fun and being in the moment. The technique is to use the Polygon2 Tool and Butterfly Seam to create a BOLD wall-hanging that shouts, “Modern” or “Contemporary”. Gyleen’s thoughts: This design class can go anywhere you want to go. I’m game for teaching you 7 plus pieced “special” diamonds so you can create an original design. You can take this to a bed quilt. This workshop is about you. Intermediate level.
Materials List: Two, 50-60 wt., thread colors, one for the top and another in the bobbin and that is visible on the wrong side of fabric. Seam ripper, thread snips, rotary cutter, ruler and mat, extension cord, straight pins, and finger pressing tool. Basic for Tumbling Blocks: (3) 1 yard of pieces of assorted solid fabric or semi-solid or batik; the 3 fabrics should be from a narrow color range (i.e., green, blue, purple or shades of one color). You need 1 yard of each. Using the 1 yard cuts, crosscut into 5 ½” strips by width of fabric. Cut at least (2) strips from each fabric. OPTIONAL: for design sub-piecing: (10) 3” x 22” strips of assorted accent fabric, solid, semi-solid or batik and 45” x 60” batting for design wall.
