Cog + Wheel Quilt Along Workshop (Piecing)

Cog-Wheel-Poster.pdfInspired by a quilt pattern from 1902, Cog + Wheel hurtles us back to the industrial age with a playfully bold graphic that rolls right on any bed. Spend the day with Denyse making your own version of her Cog + Wheel quilt pattern! We’ll discuss ways to organize our color/fabric selections, and how to vary the layout of blocks to individualize your quilt. She’ll guide you through cutting and piecing, and we’ll have time to discuss how quilts reflect our culture and historic context.

May 14
Woven Quilt Workshop
Woodville Community Center
10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Woven Quilt (Piecing)

My Woven Quilt pattern is a tribute to historic coverlets made in New England mills near where Denyse grew up and woven by hand around the U.S. The graphic effect of this pattern can be softened or accentuated by fabric choices – choose two solid fabrics close in hue or value for a quieter effect, or strong complimentary colors for maximum impact. You can also make this pattern in a range of print fabrics. Your choice! In this workshop she’ll guide you through color or fabric choice/placement and show you the most efficient methods of making the sections that compose Woven. You won’t complete your quilt top in the workshop, but you’ll be well on your way to doing so once you get home.
