Workshops

Hello folks, I’m excited to announce my Live & Interactive Workshops are now available monthly via Zoom and you are invited to join me! The fee to participate is $85 Dollars and top quality custom made Kits are available for $35 Dollars plus $20 Dollars Shipping/Handling.

I invite you to email Peter at petersquilts@gmail.com to register!

BTW, I’m a published, international award-winning modern quilter, quilt designer and teacher. I love quilting and I love teaching others to quilt. My goal is innovation, my passion is creativity and my gift is having opportunities to share new techniques with others in the quilting community.

I bring over a decade of quilting experience to the classroom and value creating a supportive atmosphere. I have taught basic, intermediate and advanced levels. My students would describe me as knowledgeable, well organized, positive and caring, but most of all an incredibly patient teacher.

It’s been my experience, participating in a Zoom meeting from 9:30 to 4:30 makes for a long and exhausting day,. Because of this, my Zoom Workshops are being held over two half-days!

Class Description: Students will learn a new approach to deconstructed/improv strip piecing and create a late summer’s eve cityscape, including bright lights, dark skies and modern tower blocks, filling this quilt in a modern way with a new approach to quilting I call Overlay Quilting.

Hover-quilting Inspiration Workshop

My Hover-Quilt titled “Pathways” has been showcased in Curated Quilts, Issue/11, in The Appliqué Gallery! The Virtual Hover-quilting Inspiration Workshop is designed around this quilt!

I’m now offering my Workshops Live, via Zoom! That’s right, we can now participate in a Live and Interactive Zoom Workshop together!

Upcoming workshop dates: March 6th & 7th, April 3rd & 4th, May 29th & 30th, and June 26th & 27th. To register email Peter at petersquilts@gmail.com

It’s been my experience, participating in a Zoom meeting from 9:30 to 4:30 makes for a long and exhausting day, because of this, my Zoom Workshops are being held over two, half-days!

My Zoom Workshops will be a relaxing and engaging two, half-day event with each day starting at 9:45am and finishing at 2:00pm. EST.

Class Description: Hover-quilting is a new form of raw edge appliqué, absent of fusible web. This innovative technique produces not only a beautiful controlled frayed edge, but also creates the illusion of your piecing to hover above the quilt top.

In this class students will move colour like never before! using HST’s in a new way to create several design elements such as ‘Cathedral Window’, ‘Pathways’, ‘Lattice Work”, and a ‘School of Fabric’.

On day one students will focus on preparing their quilt sandwich, make 36 HST’s and glue baste everything in place. On day two students will complete a 16-inch square mini hover-quilt and while doing so will learn the unique design elements that make this technique so versatile and creative.

I’m so very pleased my Hover-quilting Kits have been made with Colorworks Premium Solids from Northcott Fabric and include beautiful prints from Northcott’s Artisan Spirit Collection called “Shimmer” and are paired with Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics.

Kits are available for purchase and come with your choice of a White Background or Black Background and are $35 Dollars plus $20 Dollars Shipping/Handling.

I’m so very pleased my Hover Kits have been made with top quality products and include beautiful prints called “Shimmer” from Northcott Fabrics, Artisan Spirit Collection and have been paired with solids from Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics!
