Rayna Gillman Workshops

Rayna Gillman is presenting two workshops for Big Red Quilters’ Guild.

Full Day Workshop (Tuesday, August 17): “No Strings Attached”

You’ll fall in love with the modern versions of string quilts that Rayna teaches! Modern and contemporary or wild and funky – your granny wouldn’t recognize these exciting, new ways to make string quilts.

Forget about using and ripping off that pesky paper foundation as this class will teach improv, no paper, no-ruler: string quits that are easy and fun to make!

You choose the size and the color of the background. Add strings in all solids, all prints, or a combination.

Use a limited palette or go wild with scraps! Put you own spin on these modern string quilts; change the angle and be ready for a surprise with no two blocks or quilts alike!

Full Day Workshop (Wednesday, August 18): “Cinderella Quilts”

Leftover blocks you don’t know what to do with? Traditional blocks from another era? Experiments that didn’t quite work? Everything old is new again when you get them out of hiding and go Modern!! Whether you’re new to Modern or a veteran Modern quilter, here’s a fun challenge!! Make your rotary cutter into a magic wand, as you slice, dice, add, subtract, and completely transform those random blocks or old tops into exciting new work that you can put into a fresh, modern setting!
