Vikki Pignatelli: Improvisation: The Basics

Sponsored by the Evening Star Quilters

 

DRAGON 7The workshop will be held at:

South Flint Church of the Nazarene

4075 East Atherton Rd., Burton, MI 48519

September 24, 2013

Students begin the class with a short demo to learn the basic concept of Vikki’s Crazy About Curves technique. Then with a play-as-you-go spirit, students apply the fundamental technique to create improvisational “blocks” of any shape (four-sided, circles, ovals, curvy rectangles or teardrops).

 This class covers:

  • Basic (limited) and improvisational construction technique concepts
  • How to machine sew using the improvisational technique
  • Painless mitering
  • Splicing seams (using patterns or improvisation)
  • How to finish using improvisational techniques and ideas
  • Vikki’s whole-cloth finishing techniques
