Wabi Sabi Quilt: Improv Mini Quilt

$120 + $18 Materials Fee

This class meets Saturday June 22nd and Sunday June 23rd.

Wabi-Sabi: The art of finding beauty in imperfection. Join us as we explore free form/ improvisational patchwork. In our commitment to minimize textile waste, we will be working with fabric scraps (the left over bits, the remnants, the imperfect pieces) to create one-of-a-kind mini quilts. Develop your own personal design aesthetic as we stitch freely and without rules.

In this class, taught by local quilter Adriana Moreno of Moonshadow Goods, students will discover the joy and freedom of creating improv patchwork and will work towards creating a 18” x18” mini quilt. All sewing levels welcome. Students will learn:

  • Improvisational patchwork piecing

  • Making a quilt sandwich

  • Hand-quilting with Perle Cotton

  • Machine-quilting
