Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is excited to have Felicity Ronaghan back teaching us all about improv lettering. Felicity has been quilting for nearly 20 years. From the first minute of her first learn-to-quilt class, she knew she’d discovered her “thing.”
When Felicity discovered the online world of modern quilting and began her blog in 2010 (www.felicityquilts.com), her passion was kicked into overdrive where it’s been ever since. She’s a founding member of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild.
Felicity has been able to apply her professional experience in training and development to quilting – she has taught formal and informal workshops for VMQG, has done trunk shows, as well as created numerous tutorials for her blog. Felicity also enjoyed a two-year run as VMQG co-President and meeting chair. She currently works at her local quilt shop as a teacher, designer and sales associate.
Felicity’s style tends to the modern and improvisational, but she is just as comfortable with traditional piecing and precise ¼” seams.
Learn Felicity’s technique for making improv letters – you’ll create your own alphabet of wonky letters, both upper and lower case.
Once you’ve mastered the basics of planning and piecing a wonky alphabet, you’ll be free to use the technique in any size to piece a word, a quote or an entire song into your project.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Draw a letter with piecing in mind.
- Plan ahead for a letter’s final size.
- Cut (with or without rulers) and piece a letter.
- Increase the complexity of letters by pre-piecing components.
