Basic Crazy Quilt Course:
BCQC-1: A required course, before taking any others offered. This course covers critical design principles, teaches how to use templates to achieve uniformly aligned and spaced embroidery, and the basic stitched needed to create a variety of silk ribbon flowers.
BCQC-2: This course builds on the initial BCQC by leading participants through the creation of a block where students have the decision making authority. The first half of the course is dedicated to "color" and covers all of the thinking process that should happen when working with color.
Intermediate Crazy Quilt Courses:
ICQC-103 - Embroidery Motifs and Seams: This course expands basic embroidery to create various motifs for crazy quilt blocks. Patterns for a variety of hexagon blocks are provided, or students can use fabric "doodle cloths" to create their work. The embroidery is extensive in this class but not technically too difficult.
ICQC-104 - Motifs w/Fabrics and Threads: This course continues the embroidery work of the prior course and is technically more difficult. This class pushes the embroidery to include fabric by creating various slips, dimensional applique, and embellished applique pieces.
ICQC-105 - Silk Ribbon Embroidery Motifs: This course is required before taking the ICQC-106 or ICQC-107 courses. Various motif designs are provided for printing directly to fabric. Each will require the use of different stitches and/or sizes of ribbon to complete. Primarily silk ribbon will be used, but other ribbons are also discussed and practiced.
