Online Quilting Classes with Ricky Tims

Mo LocoMotion 2022A


Open only to previous LocoMotion students. Take the process to the next level. You'll design your own.

Class starts Thursday, December 1, 2022 - see schedule below.

This interactive course* is the sequel to LocoMotion and all participants must have been enrolled in the primary LocoMotion course. Only previous registrants are eligible as this course builds on the lessons learned in the previous course.

Please take a look at the images in the photo gallery above to see how the string pieced effect is incorporated with the LocoMotion process. Whether or not you choose to use these methods, your quilt should be a step beyond what you did in the first class and can be larger.

*An interactive class means that each student receives comments and guidance. All students see the progress of the other students for enlightenment and inspiration.

Once again, each person will create an original work. In this course, an element of paper piecing will be introduced to create "strings" (not parallel strips) to add a more detailed elements. The illusion of transparency will also be part of the class. There will be a small practice piece assigned prior to delving into the original design.

This class contains eight sessions. These sessions will flow over the main part of the holiday season, and therefore a break has been scheduled into the course which will commence in January and culminate the following week. As before, there should be ample time for designing and creating. A good amount of the 'sample making' and 'learning' is near the beginning, and your 'creating' and 'doing' comes in the later part of the course.

Students will see what the others are doing, and ideas will be shared— drawing inspiration from each other for ideas and suggestions.

Each student will access downloadable PDFs that contain pertinent class information and instructions. 

Sessions will be presented via Zoom. No additional software is required.

There will be LIVE sessions via Zoom on the following dates. Sessions run approximately one hour depending on the needs of the students. Please note that the initial class sessions are closely spaced more closely and then more time is allotted between classes to allow for sewing progress. 

Each student will post their progress via Smugmug as before.
