ICQC-106,, Vintage Victorian Style CQ Course is Open for Registration - 15-17 Sep 2019

This is an Intermediate level course.

We will be doing a "vintage reproduction style" crazy quilt block out of silk tie material (and/or cotton and silks). We'll be doing a planned block to get the hang of working with silks and fancy fabrics.

Then you will can proceed independently (with some instructions) to create a larger piece that is more "organic" than "planned". So, if you have been wanting to work up a project that is more indicative of 1800's projects...this is the class for you to get your feet wet in!

No photos...but there will be vintage style seams (no ribbon, no beads, no baubles). Embroidery is best done in silk cording or threads if you have them...but if now, cotton is fine.

Fabrics should be medium to heavy silk (not thin like for blouses). Silk ties at the local thrift or consignment store are the best for this block. PRINTS are needed, rather than prints will be part of the "learning" portion of this class.

Later, after the first initial block is finished...the last task is to step-out and design/create a larger project. Then, you can add solids to the mix of silk tie fabrics. Also, you can add other fabrics like wool, silk solid fabrics, cottons, etc. It will be YOUR creation; having gained some experience in the first half of the course.

Try to stay away from "modern" fabrics like dance costume type that are too shiny or too these don't fit the "vintage style" we are striving for in this class.

Interested? If you have completed the BCQC-101 can sign up. Just email me at your name, state/country, and email you want me to use for the class blog (and to send homework tasks if that is different).
