We had hoped to have a two day class with Chris Jurd this year but covid disruption has meant that it is going to be a one day class after all.
We love Chris’ quilts! They are immediately recognisable for their fearless curves, points and colour and Chris is well known as an experienced and organised teacher and is accredited as a teacher by QuiltNSW. That sounds very all very official but in class Chris is a lot of fun and she will get you working skilfully with new techniques and big fat juicy blocks full of colour before you know it! Both quilts/blocks on offer in this Berry class use the foundation papers techniques that Chris is known for to achieve such marvellously accurate points.
You will have the opportunity to begin the Supernova Leftovers Quilt. A quilt I love! It has such options to make it an exciting large or small quilt; bright and colourful or soft and pretty. Thank you Rachel Daisy for permission to use images from her blog Blue Mountain Daisy showing Fiesta and Scrappyluscious Stars, Rachel’s colourful version of Supernova Leftovers at Springwood Quilt Show.
The second option in this class is to have a play with New York Beauty Blocks. Below you can see the more traditional Reproduction Beauties Quilt and the brighter Fiesta Quilt. Both of these quilts have a completely different look but both use Chris’ New York Beauty block techniques.
Usually in a one day class day you will get through fabric choice, and the necessary techniques to make one of your chosen blocks. You have the choice to make the block on it’s own as a learning exercise or you can go on to make many more and complete a quilt top. Chris then covers construction techniques for finishing your quilt at home.
We had a class with Chris at Berry Quilt & Co. late in 2019 and were lucky enough to hang for a month four of Chris’ quilts at once. Such a treat!!! They looked fantastic together and of course, people fell in love with them all. scroll right down to see a pic of the wall full of Chris’ quilts that we were treated to! I’ve also included some pictures of the Lots of Dots Sampler Quilt as inspiration for the kind of quilt that you could undertake, building on the basics that you will learn in this class.
Pattern Purchase is required to attend this class but a 20% discount will apply to all of Chris’s fabulous patterns on the day, a good chance to stock up!!
COVID 19 DETAILS: Places are VERY limited due to social distancing. We have organised our classroom so that everyone has a 1.5m space and is not sitting all day directly across from anyone else. We will encourage anyone experiencing cold or flu symptoms not to come and will offer a store credit if they can not attend at the last minute. We will encourage participants to bring all of their own equipment, including irons so that there is less sharing but it is up to you to assess your personal comfort zone in this situation. We will do what we can to be sensible and provide a cleaned space but we can obviously NOT guarantee 100% risk free environment.
We are also a stockist of Chris’ Quilt Patterns like the beauties below! Look out in store for Road Trip, Emperor’s Wheel , Rising Sun, Spinner, Pickled Fish, Scrappy Windmills and others.
