Krista Hennebury Lecture: Who Gives a Flying FQ About Accuracy?
Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 7:00pm MT
In this live PowerPoint slide show, Krista presents an updated version of her webinar originally produced for the Modern Quilt Guild. In it, she discusses the why and how of cutting, piecing, and pressing accuracy, then follows up with the “but when is it really important?” part.
This presentation is chock full of information, myth-busting tips, many detailed photos, notion recommendations, and piecing tricks. We may even get into the side vs open pressing debate!
Explore the possibilities of colour expression and free-cutting while you create this wonky, nested Courthouse Step quilt (reminiscent of paper lanterns) in your own personal colour story. We’ll work intuitively from the centre out, creating a dynamic quilt with loads of personality. There will be no squaring up with this one -- instead Krista will show you how to “build out”, finding the fit between adjacent blocks and using up all of our scraps in the process. As in all of her workshops, Krista will share loads of tips while encouraging all students to find confidence in new techniques that will inform their pursuit of designing original quilts. Put your traditional quilting skills to work and explore improvisational design and piecing in a fun, supportive environment.
Quilt size: wall hanging to lap size depending on the amount of fabric you start with. A collection of 18-25 F8s for wall hanging or 18-25 FQs for large lap to single size (solids or reads-as-solids) plus 1 FQ contrast colour for block centres is recommended.
