Class Description: 

Each quilt reflects the personality of its maker. By the shapes we prefer or colors and patterns we choose, how we finish a quilt ultimately puts our fingerprints on a quilt.  

In this class you will study Indian folk art quilts and American antique scrap quilts. Sujata will discuss bold and abstract interpretations of traditional quilt blocks as well as the process of making do.    

From the examples provided, each participant will choose one or two traditional quilt blocks or geometric shapes as design elements for a quilt top. The focus will be on template-free shapes and organic-piecing methods.  Although not restricted, students are encouraged to use scissors to emphasize on irregularities and imperfections of human hands for construction of the blocks.

As students continue making the blocks, Sujata will work with each student to expand and work towards individual and unique quilt top. They will focus on creating from the heart, being present and connected with the art of making and writing a personal story in stitches. Sujata will demonstrate traditional Indian Kantha stitching; discuss organic hand quilting and bias binding for students to finish the quilt.
