Lacey J Hill: lecture, workshop and trunk show


November 16, 2013

Lacey is back for a second day.

“Half Wearables and Half Quilts & Wearables Using Large Scale Prints” Lecture and Trunk Show: Saturday, November 16, at Grace Church.
This lecture and trunk show is a combination of two of Lacey’s lectures. We’ll get a sampling of “It’s All about the Fabric! Working With Large-Scale Prints in Quilting” and “Jackets That Fit Your Style.”
Using large-scale prints in quilting can be challenging as well as confusing.  Let’s say a great large-scale print caught your eye & you had to have it!  Yes, we love to pet our fabric, but let’s USE IT!  See how fabric pattern and design can create a quilt that sizzles using those wonderful large-scale fabrics.  This part of the lecture includes quilts and wearables using large-scale fabrics.
Creating wearable art can be a journey!  As Quilters making wearable art we need to look at our fabric in a stylish manner.  How can we use our fabrics to enhance our figures?  Let’s highlight our positives and diminish problem spots.  All this can be done quite effectively with the use of color, fabric pattern and what Lacey calls “drapability” of design.  Approximately 12-15 jackets will be presented. Volunteer to be a model & you too can “strut your stuff on the runway!”

Half-Day Workshop, “Panel Play”: Saturday, November 16, 12:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at Grace Church. Limit: 20 students. Cost: $25 for Wiltwyck members ($30 for non-members).
Take a lovely 20”-24” x 40” - 44” panel, add coordinates in a “strippy” fashion, and you’ll have a lovely, super quick wall quilt. We’ll be using quick strip piecing methods to make the blocks along with modified Flying Geese.  A large scale border is optional, and the wall quilt has a self bound edge.  Lacey will have the panel shown on the supply sheet available if you are interested. Lacey will be sharing lots of time saving tips that can be incorporated into your traditional quilting.“Half Wearables and Half Quilts & Wearables Using Large Scale Prints” Lecture and Trunk Show: Saturday, November 16, at Grace Church.
