2019 Modern Quilting Techniques (Monthly)

2019 Modern Quilting Techniques

" I will be teaching this class with use of Elizabeth Hartman’s book entitled “Modern Patch Work.”  It has 12 patterns for modern quilts.   I think there is a lot to learn from these various blocks, such as curved pieces, hexagon pieces, diamond shapes, use of templates, and much about color considerations, etc.  Every month there will be a different block to learn.  The idea is to learn a new block each month.  Linda has offered to let people stay after class for an extra few hours to continue making the blocks if there is one that really peaks your interest.   If there is one that you know you would want to make a quilt of, then you would be set to carry on further to accomplish that.  This is not necessarily a class to urge you to make a quilt every month, although that would be very admirable;-) "     ~Patrice Meffley

Starting in January, Patrice Meffley will be teaching a 2-hour 3rd Saturday class in which you will learn to make a dozen modern quilts in a year.

It runs like a BOM, in that you register for a full year of classes and will receive instruction for each block during the 2-hour class time, but you can stay in the classroom and finish up your block for an additional 2 hours, if desired.  Each month, you will receive a store discount on class day.

 Registration is $25 and requires a purchase of Elizabeth Hartman’s Modern Patchwork  $24.95, less class discount.  You will be auto-charged a monthly fee of $25 for class.  

You will need to both register on the Stitch Studio site ($44.95 one time fee that includes registration and the book) and do the monthly Subscription at the link below.

“We define modern quilts as quilts that are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics.”

-Angela Pingel


“Modern quilt blocks often have expansive areas of solid backgrounds, which can be any color from traditional white to a more contemporary gray.” 

- Sherri McConnell of Quilting Blog
