Make Mine Modern: Succulent Garden Quilt - Saturday, April 14 Building oversized hexagons couldn’t be any more rewarding. This pattern allows the sewer to transform modern fabrics with large scale prints into unique blocks, enabling the sewer to make sense out of what sometimes is chaos when combining large patterned fabrics. In this three-hour session, you will map your quilt with Heather’s handy planning guide and begin piecing your way toward your very own Succulent Garden.
Footnote Quilt - Sunday, April 15, 2018 Sometimes the best and most important information is found in the footnote. In the *Footnote Quilt workshop, you’ll create one block with no curves but the final result will be gorgeous and unforgettable. It’s like magic. In the three-hour workshop, basic block construction, understanding contrast and color, and creating multiple blocks will be accomplished.
Heather's Bio:Heather Givans is a creative force; fabric store owner, fabric designer, quilt designer, national instructor, artist and art educator. Heather creates community wherever she goes. Crimson Tate: Modern Quilter was born out of an obsession with creating non-traditional quilts from contemporary, modern, and repurposed vintage fabrics. Engineered by Heather Givans, Purdue University graduate of Art History, Art Education, and Fine Arts (Printmaking), Crimson Tate quilts are good design coupled with an attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Heather learned to quilt when helping her mother fulfill a 30-year dream of learning to sew. Together, the two of them set off to quilt camp in the heart of the Midwest, where Heather fell in love with fabric, texture, patterns, and an amazing sea of sewers who possessed an endless wealth of sewing knowledge.
With a hot cup of coffee on hand – maybe a little too much cream – and some great folk tunes, Heather began working on new designs in her basement located near Lake Superior in Duluth, MN (ya sure, you betcha). There, she enjoyed inspiration from the beautiful scenes surrounding her.
Today, Heather designs fabric for Windham Fabrics, works on new pattern designs, giggles contagiously, and teaches sewing with her energetic friends and staff among the hustle and bustle of Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. Crimson Tate is an awesome fabric store that offers quality fabrics, patterns, notions, and sewing classes at 845 Massachusetts Avenue.
