In addition to workshops led by guild members, we also sponsor professional classes with guest speakers from our monthly general meetings. It is a great opportunity to learn from accomplished quilt artists.

Registration opens 90 days prior to the class date. Payment reserves your spot in the class. Class payments are non-transferable. Non-members are welcome to sign up, but will be charged a slightly higher fee. Registrants may cancel up to 35 days before the class.

GQCCC may choose to cancel the class if the minimum number of signups is not reached prior to the date noted in the class description. The minimum number of students varies by class.

If the instructor is available to teach locally, the class will be held in-person GQCCC’s Farmhouse location at 5554 Clayton Rd in the “Big Room”. Otherwise, the class will be held over Zoom.

    Put away the ruler and join artist Pati Fried to play with color, line and the expressive style of improvisational piecing. This is a course for those who are "improvisationally" curious. You will finish this course with a toolbox full of techniques to explore more expressive, spontaneous work in the future. We will break down improvisational piecing into 4 distinct categories and discuss the why’s and how’s of each technique:

    • Building Blocks For Improv
    • Tweaking Traditional Block
    • Adding Strata and Bits
    • Embrace your Curves

    This is a two-session class, held one month apart.

    This class is suitable for any level of quilter.
