“Quilting Modern ”

Katie enjoys teaching others her approach in merging improvisational quilting techniques with modern and traditional design in her West Seattle studio and nationally. 
She believes that making something by hand sets each of us on a journey to discovering who we are as artists, and that this personal process can start with simply sewing two pieces of fabric together. She loves that quilts are utilitarian works of art that showcase the evolution of one's creative confidence and developing aesthetic.

Her greatest wish is that she could sew as fast as the ideas come.

“Improv Strip Piecing"

1-day workshop - $65 members, $90 non-members (includes membership)  

Join author Katie Pedersen, Quilting Modern: Techniques and Projects for Improvisational Quilts, in refining your improvisational quilting skills in this modern quilt block workshop. By merging one construction method with multiple string-piecing techniques we’ll simultaneously create large string blocks and mitered log cabin blocks that appear both chaotic and controlled.  Design one quilt or two with your blocks.

We’ll touch on fabric options, placement and the unlimited design potential to make a finished original quilt.  Katie will have multiple inspiring examples of how you and these quilt blocks can play together.  All level of sewists welcome.
