Class: "Dames and Diamonds" with MJ Kinman

Time:  9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Website: https://mjkinman.com

Cost: $50

Description: 

Over the course of a single day-long session, students will learn how to: • Learn about the codes and visual clues I use to help me piece a gem together. • Learn about the dazzling variety of colored gemstones so that they can select the colors for their gem that bring them joy. (Hint: there are no wrong answers!) • Understand how different types of fabrics impact the flow of light and color across a quilt design. • Assemble the fabric facets to create their own 18”-square block.

PDF patterns (provided by instructor) printed onto 8.5” x 11” sheets of freezer paper (either self-made or commercially available from C&T Publishing. If self-made, either white or brown freezer paper are suitable.)

MJ likes to say she makes the biggest diamonds in the world. But instead of using the hardest substances in the world, she uses the softest – fabric. She describes the techniques she uses to create her giant gem portraits as traditional piecing using freezer paper for templates.  Website: www.mjkinman.com

MJ’s work has been exhibited in national competitions, galleries, and museums, including the National Quilt Museum and the International Quilt Museum. Her work is included in private and public collections, including Maker’s Mark Distillery and the National Quilt Museum.  Her gems have been featured in American Quilter, Quiltfolk, Quilting Arts Magazine, McCall’s Quilting, France Patchwork and others.

Have you ever wanted to make a Mariner’s Compass block but were too intimidated?  Not a fan of paper piecing or using tedious templates?  You’ll love this class for learning how to make 16-point compass blocks in 16 different sizes using Robin Ruth Design’s rulers and strip-piecing method!  Join Robin and learn all the compass basics for making either a Skinny Robin or Fat Robin mariner’s compass block.

Students will need to purchase either the Skinny or Fat Robin 16-Point Book and Ruler Combo $49.95.  Robin will offer a 15% discount to students ($42.46).

What started as a quest to make a Mariner’s Compass quilt for her submarine officer husband, Robin Long took an idea she had in 1992 and launched Robin Ruth Design in January, 2015.  She has developed a line of revolutionary rulers, books, patterns and technique for making STRIP PIECED mariner’s compass blocks in 16 sizes – that’s right, NO PAPER PIECING!  

When she isn’t on the road teaching and giving workshops, she is working on many new projects that bring the mariner’s compass into the 21st century!   Her products are sold in quilt shops across the U.S and around the world.
