November 7th – Julie Poirier Mathur “There’s An App for That”
Julie joins us from Quebec outside of Montreal to show examples of her body of work including Portrait, Contemporary, and Fantasy quilts. She has exhibited works at Salon Courtepointe Québec as well as in traveling exhibits throughout Canada and Internationally. In her lecture she will speak to how she uses free apps on the computer to design quilts. She will demonstrate and present how and why she uses these apps.
Non-members are welcome to join us in person or by Zoom. Call info will be emailed prior to the lecture.
Workshop – Nov 8th - “Fearless with Apps!”
Design a quilt using Free applications (apps).
Requires smartphones or tablets (iOS or Android)
--Release your fear of quilt design with the use of simple-to-use and free smartphone or tablet apps. This location has very good WiFi data connection.
--Choose and Manipulate a Photo and Design Your Pattern. The apps will simplify the look of the original photo, change the colours, create a colour palette, create
a line drawing to be used as the pattern. You’ll learn how to enlarge your pattern to print at home. Some sample photos will be provided
-- Construct your quilt using your preferred technique - fused appliqué, machine pieced, hand paper pieced, or any other. Fused appliqué is always an easy, fast and fun technique which complements a group workshop with limited time. Guidance and tips for other methods of construction are also offered. Completion
of the quilt might be done at home. Teacher will bring a printer and freezer paper to aid in transferring from design to fabric. Irons are provided.
--Bring many coloured scraps of fabric to share, fusible webbing and base fabric approx 18 x 18. Scissors, pen and paper for notes are also helpful.
-- A selected photo is provided to facilitate the easy learning curve. Since the results will be somewhat similar, the printed pattern will also be provided to make the quilt.
