That’s how Sarah Fielke’s fans describe her quilt designs. In Big Techniques from Small Scraps, this Aussie quilter makes six small, scrappy quilts that combine traditional techniques with updated fabrics and a fresh design sensibility. Try something different, like deconstructed piecing, or learn a new skill, like needleturn appliqué. Create Sarah’s designs or jump off and do them your own way. It’s all good fun!
NOTE: If you’d like to purchase only the DVD for this class, you may do so through this link. (Please note, any class PDF materials are not on the DVD itself. You must have streaming access to download those materials associated with the class.)
Meet Sarah Fielke, fabric and quilt designer and author of Quilting: From Little Things and Hand Quilted With Love.
Step-Down Piecing (25:00)
Step-down piecing allows you to work in diagonal steps rather than in horizontal rows. These quilts can be scrappy or coordinated and done with plain squares or pieced blocks.
Needleturn Appliqué Technique 1 (21:34)
Take the hard work out of hand appliqué with Sarah’s needleturn techniques, including easy ways to mark, make circles and create bias tape.
Needleturn Appliqué Technique 2 (34:14)
Continue with needleturn appliqué by applying your shapes to the quilt surface. Sarah shows you easy techniques for appliquéd curves and points.
Deconstructed Piecing 1 (21:06)
Deconstructed piecing is fun! Throw away your rulers and your preconceived notions and quilt freehand and improvisationally.
Deconstructed Piecing 2 (27:53)
Even more deconstructed piecing fun! You’ll create Dolly and the flowers in her garden, then assemble the whole design.
Free Curves (34:44)
Make curves without templates or pins while creating a deconstructed version of the classic New York Beauty block.
60-Degree Ruler Design Possibilities (30:07)
The 60-degree ruler is one of Sarah’s favorite tools. In this lesson you’ll see why, as she shows lots of interesting things to do, including equilateral triangles, diamonds and stars.
60-Degree Ruler: Stars in Print (16:49)
You’ll love this quilt design, which features lots of different shapes that use the 60-degree ruler. Sarah chooses contemporary fabrics, but this design lends itself to traditional prints and solids as well.
Wedge Ruler (41:57)
The wedge ruler gives you more angles and options to try, from tumblers and wagon wheels to thimbles and stripes! Make the Spring Garden design in a Dresden plate style with a fussy-cut circle at the center.
Sarah Fielke is an award-winning quilter whose work has been exhibited internationally. She is the author of five best-selling quilt books, including Material Obsession and Hand-Quilted with Love, and is also a designer for Windham Fabrics.
