Carole Lyles Shaw is a Quilt Designer / Workshop Teacher / Author. Her focus is on modern quilting techniques for beginning and experienced quilters. She is co-founder of the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild.
This one–day workshop is a surprisingly easy no math approach to making a modern quilt using just a few basic block sizes. Block sizes are based on Fibonacci math—a number series common to many things in nature such as the spirals in seashells. Don’t worry about the math! You can create a quilt that looks modern, random and improvisational quickly and easily using this method. This is also a great ‘stash buster’ quilt because you can use fat quarters of fabric leftover from other projects. During class, I will show you options for easy customization—including a no pin, no template optional curved block. I will also show you easy ways to make the improvisational center block! You will develop confidence for improvisational piecing and using an alternate grid layout. Class is a full day and you should leave with several blocks completed. You will also have full instructions and a layout for completing the quilt. You can use a variety of fabrics—including an all solids version. Or you can use a focus print and complementary prints and solids. Fabric supply list is given for both versions—choose the version you would like to make. Questions?
