Sarah Goer, September 12, 2022 Speaker and Workshop

 Sarah Goer is an art quilter who loves bold color, geometric designs and inspiring others in their creativity. As a former math teacher, she enjoys the geometry and the math of quilting.

At our September 12 guild meeting, Sarah will talk about her “Rules and Options of Planned Improv Piecing.”  Sarah likes options... but she also likes a plan. This lecture and trunk show will discuss how Sarah uses her planning nature to develop rules for herself which drive her Planned Improv quilt design work. She shares work in a series and shows how she iterates on a design. Sarah explains how she develops a formula for her project. Quilters leave with specific ideas of how to develop a set of rules to guide their improv piecing.

September 13 Workshop:  Scrappy Squares

Sarah will share her techniques at her workshop titled "Scrappy Squares."  This scrap friendly 6-hour workshop is a great opportunity to explore improv design with a precision pieced final piece. We’ll follow a set of guidelines involving measurement and specific cutting rules to create the puzzle pieces students will use to design and create their own unique improv slab. Many students leave with their first finished improv slab (approximately 18" x 20"), which can become a finished mini quilt or built upon for a larger project. Quilting ideas will be discussed.
