January 21-22, 2023 - 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. Most students who commit to these two days with determination will finish their quilt tops and won't end up with another UFO.
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 30"-32" depending on some of the maker's choices and border size. Guidance will be offered for making future versions in any size you want.
Class will contain LIVE sessions via ZOOM (no additional software needed). The sessions are also recorded and posted so that participants can watch at their own convenience and, anytime in the future as often as desired.
There will be a photo-sharing option so that each participants receives comments, guidance, and suggestions from Ricky. This process is covered in the class.
Review the image gallery above for inspiration on choosing your fabrics.
The body of this quilt uses four 16” squares of fabric. 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.
For this class, please plan to set aside the first day for working on the body of your quilt. The second day will be about designing and making the borders. Naturally some students proceed faster than others, but this two-day time frame is generally more than adequate to complete your quilt top.
