Mālama Your Inner Artist - Creating “You” in an Art Quilt

A Raw Edge Applique Quilted Wall Hanging

Friday, January 7, 2022 9am - 4pm

Saturday, January 8, 2022 9am - 4pm


Keawalaʻi Congregational Church, Mākena, Maui

Participants will be making a raw edge applique wallhanging - a piece of art of Hawaiʻi nei - and sharing the experience of an art approach to quilts. An art approach refers to trying different design options to make your work the most pleasing and a reflection of you that applies to traditional and art quilts. “The things that make me different are the things that make me, me.” said Piglet. Encourage yourself to try something new! The opportunity to collaborate and share ideas in person while being on the beautiful church grounds is also very special in these times.

We explore creativity, trusting yourself for decisions, artistic and practical skills to make your piece an expression of your unique talents, how to create an original art quilt pattern and art concepts including design, composition, value, relative color, emphasis, space, line, variety, balance, evaluation methods, eye training and more to improve our design work. Raw edge applique, quilting ideas and some free motion practice are also included.

Our workshop goals:

Ways to connect with inspiration & your inner creativity

Applying art techniques for memorable art and traditional quilts

Design church quilt top

How to create an original art quilt pattern

Raw edge appliqué techniques

Skills and free motion ideas to complete your quilt

Tuesday 2/1/2022 6pm General Meeting Program: Make Extraordinary Scrap Quilts. How do you make a lot of diverse fabrics work together for a successful scrap quilt? Learn my best tips and top secrets honed on many scrappy quilts made over the years. Discover ways to pull your scraps together, strategies for using your stash and even what does not work. You may never make an ordinary quilt again!

Saturday 2/5/2022 9am - 4pm Workshop: Color, Contrast & Cohesion. These three C’s can make or break your quilt! Learn to control them with practical exercises as you begin a simply pieced scrap quilt. Learn why color is the least important of the three C’s; discover ways to unify diverse fabrics, and wrap your mind around the way value and contrast work together. Get comfortable with making decisions as you go, because that’s what a scrap quilt requires. Once you begin to work in this way, you might not want to go back!
