Krista Hennebury Workshop:
Courthouse Colourplay

Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 11:00am MT

Explore the possibilities of colour expression and free-cutting while you create this wonky, nested Courthouse Step quilt (reminiscent of paper lanterns) in your own personal colour story. We’ll work intuitively from the centre out, creating a dynamic quilt with loads of personality. There will be no squaring up with this one -- instead Krista will show you how to “build out”, finding the fit between adjacent blocks and using up all of our scraps in the process. As in all of her workshops, Krista will share loads of tips while encouraging all students to find confidence in new techniques that will inform their pursuit of designing original quilts. Put your traditional quilting skills to work and explore improvisational design and piecing in a fun, supportive environment.

Quilt size: wall hanging to lap size depending on the amount of fabric you start with. A collection of 18-25 F8s for wall hanging or 18-25 FQs for large lap to single size (solids or reads-as-solids) plus 1 FQ contrast colour for block centres is recommended.

Class time: 4 hours

Class size: 20 students

Cost: $73.50 CAD, including GST

Light Your Ombré Fire

Does this sound like you?

Let Jennifer get you colour-confident by lighting your ombré fire! As a textile designer, quilt maker, and teacher studying colour, she knows you can learn a lot from using her SKY ombré fabrics.

Because of digital technology, Jennifer made her dream of "offering 1000 colours at your fingertips" come true.
