Pam Buda – Practice What I Preach Workshop
September 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$50.00 – $60.00
This is a hands-on lesson of the techniques covered in my lecture Secrets of Professional Quilters ~ Revealed!. The skills taught in this class will be used each and every time you quilt!! Here’s an opportunity for each student to try many new techniques including the “Make It Larger ~ Trim It Down” technique for Half and Quarter Square Triangles, Flying Geese, and Square in a square units. We’ll also cover alternate piecing techniques for the ever popular Corner Square Triangle units. Students then practice what I demonstrate using my tools and notions to see how they like the technique.
We go over a variety of pressing techniques as well. I can help a quilter struggling with accuracy by working with them to improve the accuracy of their 1/4 inch seam by watching the student and/or have them watch me, and offer several helpful options. We will cover how best to handle Connector Corners for perfect results, how to hide flaws and imperfections in the seam allowance, and so much more! If any student would like help with general quilting problems such as those described here, this is an opportunity for one-on-one assistance!
Participants prepare and cut the fabrics to make the Practice What I Preach quilt. They are making the units for the quilt during the workshop. Quilt size: 43″ x 43″
The Heartspun Quilts book of Quilting Hints, Tips, Secrets and How-To’s is required for each participant. It also contains the Practice What I Preach quilt pattern. Book cost for workshop participants only is $12 (regularly $18) and will be available the day of class. (It is not needed prior to class.)
