BROKEN GRIDS | Stacey Sharman

Saturday, April 1st | 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM (held via Zoom)

Students will create a true “broken grid” quilt. We will discuss the use of precision piecing versus improvisation and how the two techniques can be successfully combined in one quilt. It is very well suited to working with scrap and upcycled fabrics.

Students will explore creating Broken Grids using a “fence” or “plus” block. We will play with color, value, and scale, to begin building a one of a kind piece. The building blocks can be incorporated into a wall hanging that can be finished in class, or students may choose to continue building into a fuller scale project.

About Stacey

“I grew up in rural Virginia where a favorite family outing was going to antique malls, auctions, and yard sales. I was always intrigued by the history and the mystery of discarded, lost, or abandoned objects. Channeling that into my work, I have found great satisfaction in creating something lovely and new from what others may see as useless. The art of creating patchwork mimics the art of life: creating the most beautiful thing you can with what you have at hand.” — Stacey
