Feedback Loop: Fun with Transparency!

Using an original pattern by local designer Elaine Wick Poplin, students will learn how to use value and transparency to create a throw-sized quilt with a dimensional "floating" effect.

We will use strip-piecing techniques to assemble the quilt, making it an efficient quilt top to make with exciting visual impact. This class is suitable for beginning quilters with some previous sewing experience, and will still be fun for more advanced quilters.


Dark Neutral fabric (for cornerstones): 0.75 yard
Medium Neutral fabric (outer border, will be a dominant color): 1.25 yards
Light Neutral fabric (background behind blocks): 1 yard
*** Neutral fabrics should all coordinate with each other and be three clearly different values (light vs. dark) for the transparency effect to work.
*** Dark Fabric for Blocks: 1.25 yards -OR- 0.5 yards (each) of (6) dark colors Light Fabric for Blocks: 1.25 yards -OR- 0.5 yards (each) of (6) light colors
*** Block fabrics should be clearly different values of the same color -OR- light and dark of (6) colors
*** Directional fabrics or fussy cutting motifs will require more yardage than listed above.
