This is an in-person workshop.

Using the design and piecing techniques MJ Kinman relies on to create her giant gemstone quilts, students will create their own singularly beautiful work of faceted light in the Bite-Size Gems one day workshop.

Freezer paper piecing techniques are powerful techniques that can transform any quiltmaker’s ideas into reality. This is NOT foundation paper piecing! Instead this is traditional piecing using freezer paper as your template.

Over the course of a single, day-long session, students will learn how to:

  • Create a freezer paper pattern based on a mock-up of a bite-size gem provided to each student
  • Understand how different types of fabrics impact the flow of light and color across their design
  • Assemble the fabric facets to create their own 18”-square mini-quilt of faceted color

Registration Opens: April 11, 2022
