Chickens have often found their way into the quilt world — small wonder given the astonishing variety of plumage in chicken breeds. Join us in poultry piecing to celebrate these barnyard wonders! In this class, you will select from several patterns to create your chicken wallhanging.
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 demonstrate the steps for making the Freezer Paper Template copy of a pattern and offer tips for tracing and labeling them. Quilters can work along with me if they wish. I also talk about the design elements of my patterns as well as fabric selections in this meeting.
Between Meeting 1 and Meeting 2 quilters will complete the freezer paper copy and pull fabrics for that 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.
