New Workshop: Waterfall Quilt with Improvisation and Bias Curve Piecing

It's my goal to offer intermediate-advanced workshops especially (but not just) for modern quilters, so I'm thrilled to announce my newest workshop for quilt guilds and workshops, the Waterfall Quilt. There are ENDLESS opportunities for these techniques, and I hope you'll join me! Read on!

Skill Level: Intermediate +
Skills Taught: Piecing with bias curves, sewing pinless curves with a machine, color play, improvisational mindframe, brick-by-brick improvisation
Length: Runs as a 6 hour (full day) class or can be extended over several sessions

This class explores several essential intermediate-expert techniques for both improvisational and curved piecing. You'll learn how to sew my favorite improvisational blocks set in negative space. Finally, you'll practice bias curve piecing to give your quilt distinctive movement. These diverse skills are transferable and valuable – let me help you create a truly unique and modern quilt!

Optional: Turn the second half of class into an intermediate free motion quilting workshop. Learn how to quilt designs shown above and tips and tricks for quilting modern improvisational quilts. Please note that the improvisation part of the class will be shortened significantly to allow for this.


Here are the two quilts I've made so far using these techniques. I'm working on some samples with less colors and mostly solids. I'll be sharing those for the first time with the Baltimore MQG on Saturday, August 20! Thanks for taking me on, Baltimore! :)

Let's go make some modern quilts!!


  1. These are 2 of my very favorite quilts you've made! I'd be the first one to sign up for your workshop, but alas, I'm on the west coast and the commute is just too much. Everyone who gets to join you in class will be truly blessed by your can do attitude, fun spirit and innovative techniques.

    1. Thank you so much, Christine! That means a lot! :)

  2. This looks like fun! Love your quilts!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
