Do you want to host a quilting bee for this class? Contact us at to schedule one. 

Create an abstract quilt that has amazing movement and drama, using techniques pioneered by Ursula Kern. Go from inspiration to a simple sketch, then have fun “coloring” your sketch with bits of fabric to create a mock-up of your design – see before you sew! The design is gridded and blocks are foundation pieced using an easy sew and flip method with room for creativity and improvisation. Class will include lots of discussion of design principles and how to use color and value to create the drama and desired effects. Class size is limited to assure that Julia can give personal attention to each student.

Part 1 will develop the design and Part 2 will focus on sewing. The class project is a 4- or 9-block piece that you can finish by itself or incorporate into a larger project of your own design after class.

Frequently Asked Questions

 How do the live interactive classes work?

The class is taught on an online learning platform -- Zoom -- that allows you to see and interact with the teacher and the other class participants. At the scheduled time, the teacher and students will log in together -- everyone can see everyone else, so you can share work, ask questions, etc. You can view the class on a computer, tablet or phone (you may need to download the app). You will receive login instructions including links and passwords by email and text on the morning of the class. Please "arrive" online during the 30 minutes prior to class so you have time to get set up and learn to use the video conferencing tools.

 How do I set up Zoom?

If you watch the class on a computer, you will receive instructions for downloading Zoom at the time you log into the class. If you watch the class on a mobile phone, go to Google Play or the App Store to download and install Zoom Cloud Meetings.

If you need help, you might want to ask a friend, a relative (grandkids are really good at this stuff!), or go to a computer store or library.  The teacher will be online 30-60 minutes before class begins to help get set up for the class.  Once you've done this the first time, it's easy after!

Can I get help after class?

After class you will have access to a private Facebook group for people who took the same class. The recording of the class is posted there and you and other students can share your work. The teacher checks in from time to time to answer questions.

 How long will I have access to the class?

The class ends at the end of the live video conference, but the recording of the class will remain available for 60 days in the Facebook Group where you can access it.
