Hand-Sewn Quilting Primer Series: Embroidered Quilt Block


In this workshop led by artist Ekta Kaul, you will be invited to explore rhythm through stitch. Rhythms are around us and within us. Seasons, tides, circadian cycles are all examples of rhythm in nature. Stitch is a wonderful tool to create rhythm on cloth, inviting the viewer’s eye to move along the quilt in a harmonious way. Ekta will guide you in creating stitched rhythms with a focus on line and composition, drawing references from a varied vocabulary of fundamental stitches including heritage ones like kantha.

This class is part of the Hand-Sewn Quilt Primer Series. Perfect for the beginner, our series aims to demystify the act of hand sewing a quilt block through a sequence of diverse forays into block constructing. While rooted in quilting’s history of using scrap fabrics to make beautiful coverlets, this series gathers contemporary voices and techniques to give the new sewist a set of skills and the confidence to take on an existing pattern or personal composition.

Exposure to six unique teachers affords any sewist, seasoned or novice, the opportunity to witness varied approaches even within the same technique. Experiencing the series as whole is sure to provide a comprehensive foundation and will get you well on your way in a joyful practice of hand-sewn quilting.

The blocks from each class can then be assembled together in any way you like to represent a sampler of skills. They would also make great pillows or patches for another textile. There will be plenty of opportunities to include special fabric scraps you might have from your collection, to make it uniquely yours and add personal meaning.

You can sign up for the series here.
