Interleave Quilt Workshop

Instructor Kim Caskey from Edmonton Alberta comes highly recommended by our Guild members who have taken a Zoom workshop from her. Kim worked and taught at Earthly Goods Quilting.

Choose from two sizes: small (15” – 18” square) wall hanging or lap quilt (approx. 43” by 62”). Kim designed the lap size version specifically for us at the request from our Workshop Committee.

Red Interleave Quilt Small Interleave Quilt

These Interleave quilts (Lorrie Cranor technique) are pieced using a quilt-as-you-go technique in which thin strips of fabric are sewn to batting and backing.The interleave design results from cutting these strips from two panels of fabric and piecing alternate strips from each panel.Some of the panels are pieced and some are photos printed on fabric. For added interest, Kim will often shift her strips in a wave pattern. The result of this process is a complex-looking quilt that can be pieced quickly from thin strips sewn in straight lines. The larger design will use wider strips. With the use of this technique, at the end of the day your quilt will only need binding as the quilting has been done when sewing the pieces together.
