Piecing Precisely: Diffraction Quilt Block

Piecing Precisely: Diffraction Quilt Block

Piecing Precision: Diffraction Quilt Block

Half or Full Day Workshop

Inspired by an improv mini quilt I made in June 2018, I wanted to challenge myself to expand the idea and achieve greater piecing precision. After a lot of trial and error, I am excited to teach tips and tricks to achieve greater piecing precision. Let’s explore how to create the striking Diffraction Quilt Block using your normal quilting tools: a rotary cutter and acrylic rulers and discuss how to apply these lessons to your next quilting project.

Transparency Quilt Design Workshop One-on-One Time

Transparency Quilt Design Workshop One-on-One Time

Transparency Quilt Design

Half Day Workshop

Transparency is one of Yvonne’s favorite design techniques. Combining discussion, sketching, and design wall group activity, Yvonne will walk you through considerations and her design process for creating transparency quilt designs.

The Transparency Quilt Design Workshop will explore color value, fabric choices, monochromatic versus color wheel progression, and the difference between transparency and ombré design. The workshop is not geared toward supporting a specific design software, but it is structured as a hands-on, visual approach to considering design through using pencil and paper and fabric on a design wall.

Available Lectures / Virtual Lectures

Transparency Fabric Selection Tips & Tricks

45 minute lecture and Q&A

Transparency quilts are a favorite design technique, and I talk about what inspires me to design using the technique and how to approach fabric selection when you are working with or wanting to make a transparency quilt. The talk includes tips and tricks on how to use common technology to your benefit when shopping online or in person. This is a great discussion to have the day before a Triangle Transparency or Wayward Transparency class and if it is scheduled before a class, I would be thrilled to have people bring fabric selections they are considering for their class project to discuss afterwards as time allows.

Wabi-Sabi Overland: Downsizing to Live and Quilt in 75 Square Feet

45 minute lecture and Q&A

Learn about the design choices and compromises my husband and I made as we worked to create our custom expedition vehicle, Wabi-Sabi Overland. For anyone interested in learning what it’s like to travel in an RV and quilt, or for those curious about our extreme downsizing, I can give you my unique perspective on life and quilting on the road in 75 square feet!

Trunk Show

45 minute lecture and Q&A

I talk about my quilting journey which started over 20 years ago. I show my creative arc from my start to working to develop my own “voice”. In terms of being virtual, I would plan for this to be slide show based for optimum visibility and ability to show zoomed in details.

Quilt Pattern Design in Inkscape

45 minute lecture and Q&A

Inkscape is a free, open source, professional vector graphics editor for Linux, Windows and macOS. I walk through the basics needed for using Inkscape for quilt pattern design; from installation, set up, tools, and using fabric swatches for patterning.

Beyond the Drunkard’s Path
