Bite-Sized-Gems: Piecing Color and Light with MJ Kinman


September 12, 2018, American Quilters Society, Schroeder Expo Center (Roosevelt 2 Room), 415 Park Street, Paducah, KY

Bite-Sized Gems: Piecing Color and Light
Instructor: MJ Kinman

Join MJ Kinman (who uses Jacquard's Dye-Na-Flow in creating her prismatic gemstone quilts) during Fall Quilt Week in Paducah, KY, where she will be teaching a "Bite-Sized Gems: Piecing Color and Light" class. Using the design and piecing techniques MJ relies on to create her diamond quilts, students will create their own singularly beautiful works of faceted light. Using a preprinted template based on a slice of one of her own designs, MJ will show you how to code each piece for color, location, and adjacency. You will learn how to position template pieces onto fabric to achieve the desired light effects and ultimately create your own unique study in faceted color. You will leave class with an 18″ x 18″ quilt top that can be quilted at home by hand or machine. Level: Beginner, Intermediate.

Wild-Motion Machine Quilting with MJ Kinman


September 14, 2018, American Quilters Society, Schroeder Expo Center (Roosevelt 1 Room), 415 Park Street, Paducah, KY

Wild-Motion Quilting on Your Domestic Machine
Instructor: MJ Kinman

Join MJ Kinman (who uses Jacquard's Dye-Na-Flow in creating her prismatic gemstone quilts) during Fall Quilt Week in Paducah, KY, where she will be teaching "Wild-Motion Machine Quilting" class. Students will experiment with the unique free-motion quilting techniques MJ uses to enhance the facets of her diamond quilts. Quilting adds an additional design dimension to every quilt. In order to allow the flow of light and color to remain the focus of her work, MJ developed random, non-directional quilting that allows the faceting pattern to shine through. This is fun! Perfectionists need not apply, since rules and precision don’t pertain. Level: Beginner, Intermediate.
