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. 

Registration Opens: Sunday, January 29, 2023
