    Jacquie Gering brings her advanced walking foot quilt workshop based on her new book WALK 2.0 to Austin! 

    We'll be taking the walking foot through its paces during this WALK 2.0 class.  Students will learn and quilt designs that represent design categories featured in the 2.0 book.  Students will learn and practice several of the BIG Six walking foot techniques. With these skills and techniques student should be able to tackle the remaining designs in the walk book on their own.  Students should be familiar with walking foot basics.

    To download this workshop's materials list and homework, please click here.

    Materials List:

    1. Sewing machine with walking foot or dual feed and a seam guide (guide bar). The seam guide is required in this class. If you don't have a seam guide, please contact me and I'll help you fashion one for your machine. Please make sure your machine is clean, oiled and in good working order with a fresh needle installed. If an open toe sole is available for your walking foot, please make sure that it is attached.
    2. The WALK 2.0 book is highly recommended, and I recommend the first WALK book as well. (The books are available for purchase from your local quilt shop or Amazon.)
    3. An extension table is recommended, but not required. 
    4. If using a dual feed, please have all the feet that work with the dual feed available. Choose a foot that has an open toe with good visibility around the needle. 
    5. Knee lift installed if available with your machine
    6. Thread for quilting (I recommend 50 weight Aurifil thread in both the top and bobbin). Typically an 80/12 needle is a good match for 50-weight thread. Choose a needle that is good for piercing layers like a sharp, quilting or topstitch needle. Thread that contrasts with your practice sandwiches will help you see your quilting stitches better while practicing.
    7. Fabric safe marking pencil and a 24” acrylic ruler for marking
    8. A beam compass or make a string compass from the instructions on pages 70-71 of WALK 2.0. The beam compass may also be available at your local Home Depot. A Clover pencil should fit in the spot for the regular pencil in the compass.  Make sure you have a marking tool that will fit in that pencil slot. Link to the beam compass is at the bottom of the supply list. (If you need help with compass requirements, please feel free to contact me.  I’m happy to help.  There are other options for this class that I’m happy to explain.)
    9. Quilting gloves (optional)
    10. Four 18" x 18" quilt sandwiches for practice (top, batting, backing). Please make sure the batting and backing extends 1” on each side beyond the quiltable area.
    11. Straight pins and either masking or painter’s tape
    12. Tweezer or stiletto for helping pull up bobbin thread
    13. 24” acrylic ruler for marking
    14. Practice sandwiches should be whole cloth and solid fabrics so you can easily see your stitching.  I recommend low loft cotton batting.  You can pin baste or spray baste your prepared quilt sandwiches, but they need to be basted and ready to quilt.  Spray basted quilt sandwiches will be easier to mark and are recommended.

    Homework:

    1. Read the Walking Foot Refresh chapter in WALK 2.0 or the Basics chapter in WALK and make a list of any questions you may have about walking foot basics.
    2. Print the interval tool handout that I will send you.
    3. Print templates that you receive as handouts.  Trace on plastic or stiff cardboard and cut out.
    4. Print the basics handout for note-taking.

    Karen K. Stone English Paper Piecing by Machine

    Do you love but avoid the traditional one-patch? Handwork is wonderful, but let’s explore an innovative machine technique, useful for any pattern that would be English paper pieced, without compromising the integrity of the original.  We begin with hexagons, then move quickly to a Sunburst star (like in the pictured quilt, simplified for class). You’ll enjoy having this in your bag of tricks!

    Machine not required for this workshop.

    No kit fee! The pattern will be emailed to you after your register for the workshop.

    Supply list

    ·        10-15 fat quarters (or equivalent) from stash, some of which should read solid.

    ·        fabric scissors

    ·        rotary cutting tools

    ·        invisible monofilament thread

    ·        offset tweezers (optional)

    ·        straight pins

    ·        pin-able ironing personal ironing board (pins will stand straight up during use - June Tailor Cushioned Quilter’s Square ’n Blocker from JoAnn is best; doubled, covered foam core also works)

    ·        personal craft iron, optional

    ·        poster board, one big sheet or equivalent (heavier than card-stock but lighter than cardboard)

    ·        retractable box cutter or exacto knife

    ·        Elmer’s washable school glue, or other basting glue (glue-pen or the smallest bottle - not a glue stick for this)

    ·        If you have some 1” pre-cut paper hexagons, pull a few out! Otherwise, we’ll make our own.

    Note: If you have Dollar Tree, they sell box cutters, glue pens & poster board

    AAQG January General Meeting will be a HYBRID meeting – in-person at Westminster Presbyterian Church of Austin and virtual by ZOOM. 


    Karen K. Stone will join us by ZOOM for her lecture, a trunk show of her evolution as a quilt maker, which includes early and late quilts, and works in progress.

    6:30pm Arrive in-person or on Zoom; 6:45pm Show and Tell; 7:00pm Meeting; ~7:30pm Lecture and Q&A.

    A quilter since 1986, Karen’s inspiration manifests equally of innovation and tradition. Her quilts have won numerous awards, including first prizes in international competitions, and her designs appear frequently in exhibition. Her Clam Session quilt received the Master of Innovative Artistry award at IQA in 2009, and her Indian Orange Peel Quilt was People’s Choice at Quilt National ’95. Having enjoyed success in design, publication and teaching, she finds no greater satisfaction than in hand-finishing a newly quilted piece, with the possible exception of making someone else’s color challenge her business. Karen holds degrees in Piano from Baylor and Indiana Universities, has two beautiful daughters, three exemplary cats, and rides her bike from historic Deep Ellum in Dallas, TX.

    Join us to meet award-winning fiber artist Andrea Brokenshire in-person for her lecture, My Journey as an Art Quilter. Andrea's Desert in Spring, pictured above, won The Gammill Master Award for Machine Artistry at the 2021 International Quilt Festival. 

    6:30pm Arrive in-person or on Zoom; 6:45pm Show and Tell; 7:00pm Meeting; ~7:30pm Lecture and Q&A.

    Andrea Brokenshire (AMB Fiber Art and Design) is a national and international award winning fiber artist and instructor from Round Rock, Texas who specializes in contemporary art quilts which depict botanical imagery inspired by her photography. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from Oregon State University in 1984. She combines her love of the natural world and fabric with her art. Andrea’s art quilts depict large scale flora appliquéd and then thread-painted onto a “confetti “ background of multiple fabrics reminiscent of the impressionistic era. “I try to express the essence of a flower with fabric. The curve of a petal, the vibrancy of color and the diversity of flora to me is sexy... beautiful. For me, the creative process is a journey as essential as breathing. An expression of self.”

    Join Patricia Belyea for a fun and challenging 2-day ZOOM workshop featuring her Matchstick Madness Word Quilt.

    You will learn how to make the Matchstick Medallion (pictured top left, approximately 17" square). On the first day, Patricia takes you step-by-step through her process of drafting matchsticks, making a paper pattern, and assembling the Matchstick Medallion. Once you've mastered this technique, you will design additional alphabet letters out of fabric matchsticks. By the end of the workshop, you will have completed the word LOVE and discussed how you will build out the rest of your quilt design. If you are adventurous, design a different word around your Matchstick Medallion. 

    On the second afternoon, Patricia will teach you how to finish your quilt with a Designer Facing. This finishing technique—simple, fun, and fast—gives your quilt a contemporary look with nothing showing on the front.

    Patricia Belyea is an internationally recognized quilter who broadcasts from her teaching studio in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington state. With seven cameras and five computers, Patricia gives you a front row seat in your own sewing room.

Always searching for a twist on traditional quiltmaking, her designs are well known for their contemporary whimsical look, adventurous appliqué and fearless use of colour. She enjoys collaborating with her partner, Carl, in their design company Colourwerx, designing surface patterns, self publishing a line of best selling quilt patterns and traveling to share their love of colour with quilters around the world.
