APRIL 9-10, 2022 - Saturday/Sunday
Convergence quilts are magical, fast, easy, and VERY fun! This course will cover the first of four Convergence methods - the Harmonic Convergence. By using only four squares of fabric, an amazing and magical artful wall quilt emerges.
Convergence all began when Ricky discovered how to use multi-colored hand-dyed fabrics. Many of his convergence quilt ONLY use these fabrics, but for this class, you will be encouraged to use two squares of multi-colored fabrics and mix them with fabrics of your own. Most students who push through these two days with determination will finish their quilt tops.
WARNING: Convergence quilts are known to be addictive. Once you learn the process and start seeing the possibilities, you may want to make several versions. They really are fast and fun, and they are great for both traditional and contemporary quilters who would enjoy making a quick, fun, and artful project.
This small wall quilt will measure approximately 32"-32" depending on some of the makers choices, but guidance will be offered for making future versions in any size you want.
Please plan to spend day one working on the body of your quilt and day two designing and planning borders. Naturally some students proceed faster than others, but this time frame is generally more than adequate if you are committed to doing the work.

The body of this quilt uses four 15” squares of fabric. Students choosing to use Ricky's hand-dyed fabric will be urged to use at least 2 squares (of the four squares needed) The other two will be the student’s choice. Sometimes a large-scale theme print will work well. Other times, fabrics that mix and blend well with the kit fabric make good choices. In essence, it is impossible to plan how these quilts will look. They are a mystery until they are cut up and sewn together. Students using their own fabrics may use four different fabrics. Large theme print fabrics work well, but are not essential.
The first day of class is learning to cut and assemble the body of the quilt. The second day is all about the borders. The borders MAKE the quilt and there are endless possibilities. Ricky will give suggestions and guidance on how to give your quilt a fun and innovative border. No two will be alike.
