S107 – Octagon Rose: Create a Sparkling Gem Block

$70.00

MJ Kinman

Location:

One day

Saturday, January 23rd 2021

From 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM

 



Class Type: Domestic Machine Work

Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate

Description: Using the same freezer-paper piecing techniques I've used to create my giant diamond quilts, students will create their own singularly beautiful work of faceted light. I created the Octagon Rose pattern after being inspired by this lovely octagonal crystal. This is not foundation paper-piecing! We won’t sew to paper foundations so there’s no paper to tear out of the back of your quilt top. This is traditional piecing that uses freezer paper as your templates. If you can sew two pieces of fabric together with a 1/4-inch seam allowance, you can do this! In this 3-hour live, online class, students will learn…. • Multiple ways to manipulate value contrast across colors to create a sparkling gem • How certain types of fabrics (i.e. solids, prints, ombres, hand-dyes, or hand-painted fabric) impact the flow of light and color across a gem • How to read the codes printed on each facet to understand how to piece their gem • How to customize their gem into additional facets if desired • No-pressure piecing techniques that result in a lovely, 14” square gem block The pattern is divided into 7” x 7” quadrants, each of which can be downloaded as a PDF document and printed onto sheets of freezer paper. Students may purchase commercially available freezer paper sheets from suppliers like C&T Publishing or they may purchase a roll of freezer paper from their local grocery store and cut 8.5” x 11” sheets to run through their home printer. (Please note that neither waxed paper nor parchment paper is appropriate for this class. Freezer paper allows you to draw or print a pattern on one side. On the other side, freezer paper has a plastic substance on the back which allows the paper template to adhere to fabric when you to press it with a hot iron without leaving a residue.) At the end of our time together, students will have created a 14” square gem block that can be used in many different ways. Examples will be provided.

Class Type: Hand Work

Skill Level: Beginner

Description: Years ago, our great-grandparents made beautiful quilts using a technique known as English Paper Piecing. Prior to the mass production of the sewing machine and the emergence of long arm quilting machines, quilts were made by using paper templates and scraps of fabric. First, individual pieces were made, then those pieces were assembled into larger quilt blocks. Finally, the individual blocks were sewn together by hand to create the final quilt. Lucky for us, traditional sewists and quilters have kept this elegantly simply and portable quilting technique alive so we can share it with you.

Kit: Paper piece templates for both quilt blocks, fabric for both quilt blocks, sewing needle, Aurifil 50 wt thread, Wonder Clips, glue stick

Class Type: Technology

Skill Level: All Levels

Description: As quiltmakers and guilds become more comfortable with taking classes online, the demand for well-edited videos that showcase our offerings continues to increase. Whether you’re interested in creating promotional videos to share on social media or pre-taped demo videos to use during your online class, I can help. In this class, you’ll learn how to combine Zoom technology, PowerPoint capabilities, and key video editing techniques to create stand-out presentations. In the first hour, I’ll show you how to: • Build a script to help organize the resources needed to tell your story. • Use the features and tools within PowerPoint to help blend text and images to tell your story, including transitions, animations & design templates. • Use Zoom’s online meeting technology to transform your PowerPoint presentation into an MP4 file (a mini-movie file). • Find music that will perfectly complement your story. In the last two hours, I’ll demonstrate techniques and best practices to combine all those wonderful assets – your movie files, images, and music files – in Shotcut (a free, downloadable video editing app). You’ll learn how to: • Trim out the bits you don’t want to include. • Smooth out the places you’ve trimmed by creating effective cross-fades. • Fade in video and audio – and fading them out again • Manage volume. • Insert still images such as a logo and additional video clips into your main video. • Add captions. • Speed up the action. Resource materials include a summary of points discussed in the class, as well as exercises to help you improve your proficiency. This class is designed to help quilt teachers prepare for the Global Quilt Connection events scheduled for Feb and March 2021, as well as anyone who wishes to showcase their products or techniques through video.
