Basics - The best place to begin!
Basic Crazy Quilt Course-(BCQC-101):
This is the first course you need to take. Handouts in this course will be used in the following courses as well. The course covers critical design principles; how to use templates to achieve uniformly aligned and spaced embroidery; creating some frequently used fiber embroidery stitches for crazy quilt projects; and creating flowers using common silk ribbon embroidery stitches. This is a “controlled” class with very specific guidelines for construction of a quilt block suitable for embellishing that allows identification of “problem areas” you will undoubtedly encounter when you are working on projects independently. There is a supply list for this course, but items should most likely be in your own stash already…possibly except for the silk ribbon.
1. Supply List
5a. Block Pattern
10b. SRE Basics
This course builds on the skills and concepts learned in the BCQC-101 module. Rather than a controlled class; this module leads participants through the creation of a block where students have the decision-making authority. The first half of the course is dedicated to "color" and covers all the thinking process that should happen when working with color. The second half of the course is the creation of a crazy quilt block working layer by layer to build the embellishing. If you are comfortable in your crazy quilting endeavors and understand color selection guidelines; it is fine to skip this course.
4. Color Mixing
5. Color Play
8. Lace & Trims
11. Beads & Baubles
