Workshops by Debbie Maddy

 
 

Learn to make the old style 45 degree diamond quilts using only half square triangle units. The No Diamonds/No "Y" Seams classes are designed to teach the techniques to make these novice friendly patterns look like an expert pieced them. The silk class is to get you past the fear of cutting that beautiful piece of silk. The Gypsy Sampler is just for fun and the Shibori Indigo and Dye classes speak for themselves. Email for the current fees for classes.

NEW: Shibori Resist with Indigo Dyeing

We will make an Indigo vat first thing in the day then the FUN begins.

Gypsy Sampler

Are you ready for some fun? This class is what I call "Whimsical Piecing"! You have no worries about matching points or precise seam allowances....just pure fun. All of the blocks start out with 5" squares and most are nine patches in the beginning. The blocks for the 60" X 80" accent quilt are made with 9 fat quarters or 3 charm packs.

 

The Road to Success with Silk

Do you have that wonderful fabric you have been saving because it is so special? This class is designed to get you past the "Fear of Cutting". The class covers how to stop raveling, pins and needles to use, wash or not, kinds of silk etc. etc. etc. In class we will do a runner using five fat quarters so you can get used to working with silks in quilts. Kits will be available for purchase.

 

Ice Surprises - Ice Dyeing for Beginners 

We will be using special folding and scrunching techniques along with ice and 

dyes to create truly one of a kind hand dyed items on cotton and silk. 

The process is fun and the outcome is always a surprise _ a very happy surprise!

There will be a supply fee paid directly to the instructor in class.

Ground travel expenses: Current allowable federal mileage reimbursement rate at time of presentation from my home in Graham, TX, to teaching site and back, lodging and meals.
