Courthouse Colourplay with Krista Hennebury

Courthouse Colourplay.

Explore the possibilities of colour expression and free-cutting without rulers while you create this wonky, nested Courthouse Step quilt (reminiscent of paper lanterns) in your own personal colour story.

We’ll work intuitively from the center out, creating a dynamic quilt with loads of personality. There will be no squaring up with this one — instead Krista will show you how to “build out”, finding the fit between adjacent blocks and using up all of your scraps in the process.

As in all of her workshops, Krista will share loads of tips while encouraging all students to find confidence in new techniques.  Put your patchwork and rotary cutting skills to work and explore improvisational design and piecing in a fun, supportive environment.

Pieceful Courthouse

This quilt looks fantastic made with solids. There are several options for choosing your colours (you really should bring 15-20 different colours to class). 

Krista lists some helpful websites and other tips for fabric selection on the supply list. Due to the random angles and the fact that there really isn’t any background or negative space in this quilt design, patterned fabric can result in a very chaotic, confusing quilt. Really try to stick with solids, or consider tiny prints or tone on tones that read solid like grunge or grunge dots if you must.

For our one day class, we are going to work within a moderate scale and stick with wallquilt/baby to lap-size quilt tops.
