Hexagons, State of the Art Workshop
This full-day class is designed as an overview of all the techniques currently being used in the hexagon world. Not all of them are by hand! We start with very traditional techniques, including English Paper Piecing (EPP) and one that uses a Mason jar lid as the template. We continue to explore plastic and paper templates large and small, including elongated hexies (which are used for the Lucy Boston Quilt of the Crosses). A full discussion of fussy cutting is part of the story. After that, we’ll look at quilt-as-you-go techniques, pieced hexies, and designing with hexies. New techniques which Cathy will demo include machine piecing them using both Inklingo and Marci Baker (no set in seams!) techniques. There will be an extensive class handout, with overview of the techniques and sources for supplies. During the class students will try out 3 and possibly 4 of the techniques themselves.
Cathy will bring some of her own hexagon quilts, and students are encouraged to bring show and tell of their own hexagon quilts. Learn more about Cathy Miller.
Workshops are open to both guild members and non-guild members. Because the cost of the workshops is subsidized by members’ dues, non-members are asked to pay an additional $20 per workshop. Non-members are able to register for a workshop approximately two months prior to the workshop. Workshop registration policy.
Online registration is available for both members and non-members. (If you prefer to write a check and mail in your workshop registration, please download our printable form.)
