Bird of Paradise is a flower I’ve long admired. Stately, elegant and vibrant, this blossom just begs to become a quilt. This is my version of this tropical beauty. In this pattern, I’ve used a variety of prints to create dimension and visual interest. I also like the double border that is part of the piecing design. This flower is so large that it literally bursts through to the edges of the quilt.
Artisan workshops are design for experienced quilters who have taken a workshop from Ann Shaw or have completed one of her patterns. These patterns feature detailed piecing and design elements that create visually engaging quiltS.
This workshop is offered two separate Zoom meetings, plus an optional follow up meeting. Dividing the workshop into several meetings provides focused time to learn the techniques and discuss how the design elements in printed fabrics visually impact a quilt. The time between meeting is particularly helpful in allowing everyone the opportunity to work at their own pace. The live Zoom meetings provide everyone ample time to ask questions about their individual projects.
Meeting 1: (90-120 minutes): I will do a brief refresher demonstration of the Freezer Paper Template method. It is assumed participants are already familiar with this piecing method and are encouraged to prepare the Freezer Paper copy of this pattern in advance of this meeting. Quilters can work along with me if they wish. We will talk about the design elements of this pattern and the ways different fabric selections visually impact the look of this quilt. Participants should pull fabrics for this project prior to this meeting. We will discuss your fabric selection options and begin work on your project.
Between Meeting 1 and Meeting 2 quilters should continue working on their project.
Meeting 2: (90-120 minutes): Everyone works along as I offer tricks and tips for working with the freezer paper templates. I offer suggestions about fabric selections to each participant. I also do several demonstrations during this session and discuss how the patterns will sew together.
Meeting 3: (60 minutes) This is an optional drop-in follow up Zoom meeting where I offer individual help, and talk about quilting these projects.
