Quilter’s Guild of Dallas: Kathy Schmidt talk & workshops


QGD October Meeting

Kathy Schmidt – “From Tradition to Rule Breaker”

A visual journey from my beginnings as a traditional quilter to the way my work is currently created. The steps along that path are available to any quilter and I will show you how to get there. How to begin breaking the rules, why you might want to, and what you should expect when you get there-even what doesn’t work-are all covered in this lecture. (This trunk show uses actual quilts, not a digital presentation!)

Friday Workshop

Rule Breakers—Build a Scrappy Village

Your unique improv blocks will be used to create a scrappy little village. Learn straight line improv piecing, while trying to put a dent in your personal scrap pile. Design, color choices and construction methods, including quilt-asyou-go, will be a big part of this class. Your village will NOT look like the sample, but will be completely and uniquely YOU.

Student Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Rule Breakers – Improv with a Modern Slant

No need to be dependent on patterns-learn how to do free-form piecing to create your own unique designs. Think ‘modern’ with lots of solid colors, low volume prints and asymmetrical grid work. Your quilt will NOT look like the sample. We’ll discuss contrast and color value and learn how to construct a quilt with different sized blocks. Once you learn the basics, your quilts can always be pattern free and any size you’d like.
