Session 2 - Primitive Patchwork, The Elusive Muse, and Design Secrets

Saturday, June 23, 2018  | 9:00 am - 5:00 pm • All levels

Primitive Patchwork - This quilt project (and method) was derived from an antique Amish quilt. It is freeing to make, but rooted in tradition. The process is unorthodox, but the results are dynamic. The project is also great to do with a youngster in your life.

The Elusive Muse - In this motivational section, Ricky shares insights into the creative mind and delves into the obstacles that creative individuals face. He also shares wisdom on how to find and embrace the muse of creativity.

Design Secrets - Learn to design from what you know - not from the unknown. The journey to being original is easier than you think. Whether you are an art quilter or a traditional quilter, these principles will boost your ability to create original designs.

Enhanced Outline Appliqué - Ricky is famous for using the elegant single and double-blanket stitches for his award-winning quilts. The technique is more forgiving that most other appliqué methods and the outline adds an extra embellished dimension to the work.

Have you ever been to Tuscany? This is a small drawing I did when I was in Tuscany and you will trace it on fabric, stitch with black thread, and then color with pens and pencils. It’s different because I quilt first and then use pencils to color. However, there are a few tricks to using the pencil to make them permanent.
