Kimberly Einmo Mystery Quilt Workshop

 

Mystery Quilt - Star Pop!

Instructor - Kimberly Einmo
Friday, January 6th, 2017 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Skilled beginner - intermediate level

Do you love to make mystery quilts? Or does the thought of choosing fabrics and making a quilt for which you have no idea what the end result will be scare you? Fear not! Whether you are a seasoned veteran and you enjoy the intrigue and suspense of not knowing the final outcome or if you have never had the courage to tackle making a mystery quilt before, Kimberly's ultra-popular mystery quilt classes and patterns are perfect for you! She has designed the entire process to be simple, fun, and stress-free so you can take as much risk as you like with your fabric selections or risk nothing at all. Step out of your “color comfort zone” and try something new. The rule of thumb is this: if your fabrics have good contrast, look great when lined up together, and match the values given in the fabric requirements table, then they'll look beautiful when sewn together. Whether you’ve made a mystery quilt in the past or if this is your very first one, you’ll love this new design, which is a combination of three traditional-style pieced blocks with a surprising, creative twist! While the blocks themselves are not difficult to piece, you’ll be amazed at the dynamic secondary pattern when the blocks are sewn together! This class is suitable for any quilter with some rotary cutting and machine piecing experience and guaranteed to be fabulous and fun!

Modular Piecing: Ultimate Skill-Building Sampler

Instructor - Kimberly Einmo

2 day workshop Saturday/Sunday January 7th & 8th, 2017 9:30 am - 4:30 pm each day

Level: Skilled Beginner/Intermediate

 

Pre-cut fabric packs are one of the hottest trends in quilt making today and quilters everywhere just can't resist these delectable textile treats! Their versatility is absolutely perfect for this fast-paced, fun-filled, workshop to turn all those enticing 2½” strips, 10” squares and charm packs into a fabulous quilt. Let Kimberly introduce you to the exciting and wonderful world she calls “modular piecing,” which is a system of simple, pieced units used to create new blocks, settings or complex-looking designs. Using squares, rectangles, triangles, diamonds and a myriad of basic ‘building block’ units, Kimberly will show you how to efficiently piece a wide range of blocks in modular sizes. She’ll teach you dozens of tips and tricks for using her EZ Flying Geese and EZ Jelly Roll Rulers along with traditional methods to their best advantage with no math, no wasted fabric, and best of all, no stress! Featuring fabulous techniques from her book, Precut Bonanza, Kimberly will share every trick in the book for precision piecing and lovely machine appliqué to create beautiful blocks and unlock your inner design diva. You’ll love her encouraging, upbeat, energetic (and humorous) teaching style, so join her for this retreat-style class and create a stunning sampler quilt and graduate as a precuts-pro!

Lone Starburst
Instructor - Kimberly Einmo

Monday January 9, 2017 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Intermediate level

Kimberly's most popular class; this one sells out wherever she teaches it! All it takes are 40 – 2½” strips from a purchased precut bundle or strips cut from your own stash, plus one background fabric and the diamond design possibilities are practically endless! Kimberly will teach you how to strip-piece and cut diamond building blocks from strips using her EZ Jelly Roll Ruler with no “Y” or set-in seams. You’ll design your own unique Lone Starburst variation quilt! The first part of the class focuses on accurate and efficient cutting and piecing of the diamond units and the latter part of the class will focus on design elements and the almost limitless possibilities for designing your own layout using your diamond units. The real magic comes from the fact that the quilt is assembled with straight-set blocks, not diamond wedges or blocks on point. This is an eye-opening class for anyone who wants to create a one-of-a-kind quilt with a Lonestar twist!

 

Can't decide which class to take?  Take them all! Our Kimberly Einmo Class package is priced at $288 for all four days of workshops instead of $320.  Click here to register for the package.
