What I discovered over the years is that hand-dyed fabric and stained glass have so much in common. Beautiful colors, striations and mottling are present in both. This makes it so easy to create stained glass quilts using fabric. I suggest you look at my quilt Wisteria, part of the permanent collection of The National Quilt Museum, as proof of what I am saying. You will be learning the same exact method I used to make this gorgeous quilt. You will hand draw your own pattern using my photograph in this class but at the same time you will learn how you could easily do

This is a fast-paced workshop where participants will create their own singularly beautiful work of a faceted gem using the single-foundation piecing technique I used to create my own “diamond quilts”. Participants choose one of several pre-selected abstract gem designs based on their skill level. They learn how to chart on freezer paper, code pieces for color, location and position template pieces onto fabric to achieve the desired light effects. Participants leave the class with a small top that can later be quilted as a pillow, table topper, art picture or added on to for a full quilt.

During my presentation, I will talk about the techniques of creating and assembling the hundreds of pieces in each diamond, materials I use to create the wash of color and light across a gem’s surface and the quilting techniques that enhance a gem’s facets. I will also share the importance of choosing joy and saying “no” to fear as I made the leap from the Corporate Life to the Creative Life.
