Break It Up Example Quilt

Several quilt-as-you-go methods will be covered in this class. Students will make samples of different ways to attach pre-quilted sections or attach to unquilted sections to an already quilted one and continue quilting. We will also look at patterns brought in by class participants and discuss which method would be best suited to turn each pattern into quilt-as-you-go so you can feel confident making your quilt from beginning to end at home.

Spiral Bargello Table Runner Workshop on ZOOM

Instructor: Carolyn Mulders

Carolyn Mulders

I started quilting in 1997 while my husband and I were living in Cold Lake, Alberta. I have been an avid quilter ever since! Now, I have my own studio and long-arm quilting machine, and really enjoy sharing what I have learned over the years. Because we moved approximately every 3 years, I have been involved with several different communities and guilds. Along the way, I have had the good fortune to be involved in many community based teaching and group projects. I started teaching beginner quilters in 2007 when we were stationed overseas in Belgium. I even once taught a class of Grade 3 & 4 students on how to sew. Through teaching, I also continue to learn. My recent past includes Chairman of the Nanoose Quilters Group (2020 - 2022) and Co-Chair of the Parksville Workshops Committee which continues today.

Learn how to make an unusual and unique table runner. This curvy project combines the Bargello technique with a figure 8 design. If you have ever wanted to make a quilt with no corners, this is for you!
