Polygon Play Retreat with Jennifer Sampou

$ 495.00

Join Jennifer Sampou March 24-25, 2018 as she teachers her brand new pattern Polygon Play in the beautiful Napa Valley at Pokey Bolton's art barn!

Learn a creative, alternate idea which is a riff of the hexie quilt and see how fun it is to make Jennifer’s new Polygon Play pattern. You will learn three techniques: How to make quick half square triangles, create improv polygon shapes and techniques for various dynamic layouts both set and free flowing. Also learn a variety of applique possibilities by hand and machine. Jennifer discusses fabric choices, color selection and balance of value in both positive and negative areas of quilt. This is a very fun, rewarding and easy workshop that focuses on color, design and layout, not perfectly sewn seams. We relax those shoulders and play!

1st day: 7 hours includes a 1-hour lunch break.

Jennifer will share and present ideas and directions for color and layout with so many options to explore. Choose fabrics with help of Jennifer’s expert eye for color and value.  Learn and begin piecing technique for half square triangles. Make a bunch of wonky hexies! Discuss options for background and appliqué techniques.

2nd day: 7 hours includes a 1-hour lunch break.

On the second day, continue work from day before. Discuss color and value for background, and play with and set final layout on background. Jennifer will demonstrate options for hand and machine appliqué. Many students leave with much of the project completed.
