    Mid-Century Modern Quilts


       

    The 1950s through 1970s produced some fabulous design that still remains current today, but did mid-century modern styles influence quilting? While pointing out period quilt artists who did work in an identifiably MCM style, the lecture also considers why there weren’t more of them, and how he looks to other areas of mid-century design to bring the flavor of this exciting period to his quilts. The accompanying slide show will show historical quilts and other source material from his ongoing research, while his MCM-influenced quilts will be presented in trunk-show style.

    Accidental Artist

           

    When you design quilts as you go, you embrace serendipity and become an “accidental artist”. Learn several methods of creating fused quilt designs in an improvisational manner. Begin with a heap of pre-fused fabric scraps from Laura’s stash to trigger your design ideas. Learn various systems for constructing your artwork and put your colorful fabric kit to good use. You’ll create and learn as you go. It’s fun to design on the fly!

    All skill levels welcome!

    Free-Stitch Embroidery Landscapes


     

    Densely hand stitched, these small landscape vignettes are created from your original design. They are made with cotton threads and free stitched on hand-dyed silk fabric. The vignettes are rich in color and texture and marks by the maker. You’ll learn about fabric and batting choices, how to transfer your design to the silk, the threads and needles best for stitching, and how to devise embroidery stitch combinations unique to your design. It is a slow, thoughtful, tempo of making intimate art work.

    All skill levels welcome!

    Where Did I Go Wrong: Confessions of a Serial Quilter


        

    Explore the artist’s quirky mind with this lecture about quilt making in a series. Enjoy the revelation that one chicken quilt will surely lead to a second, third, or fortieth. Discover what drives a person to create multiple quilts about a blue chair, garden implements, or unsung kitchen appliances. All is revealed in this exposé, the Confessions of a Serial Quilter. After the lecture, which includes dramatic renditions from Songs of the Fuser, Laura will display her small art quilts, answer questions, and offer a trunk show of hand-dyed fabric and threads from the Artfabrik dye shop.

     Tweaking Tradition, One Block at a Time

                        

    Whether you love traditional or modern quilts, or something in between, there is historical design aspects of all quilt styles that are tried and true. This workshop is an opportunity to push the boundaries of time honored, traditional block design to the edge - where original ideas are found. By following a step-by-step method and being given permission to alter and explore, creative design originality will emerge. Discussions on how to create an original quilt design with these new blocks will also be part of the workshop.

     The Fifth Layer

                        

    The fifth layer isn't just about baubles and beads. It is consciously adding the finishing elements to the 4 layers of a quilt that you worked so hard on. This is your opportunity to bring the quilt to life by enhancing and emphasizing specific areas, add movement and texture, and to create a conversation between the viewer and your work. We will spend the day exploring unusual ways to add interest to your work with fabric manipulation, embroidery and big stitch thread work, inks and stamps, and yes, a few baubles and beads. Students are encouraged to bring an unfinished work to discuss in individual conferences on how to add a successful 5th layer.

    Watching Tradition Evolve





    We live in an innovative society. Change and transformation is everywhere. Quilting is ever changing, just as art has evolved through the ages. Modern, improvisational and minimalist design all draw inspiration from history. Let's shake things up a bit and discuss how to use traditional quilts and block design as a jumping off point for innovative design in your next quilt. Warning: You will go home inspired and ready to start something new!
