Join me in welcoming San Francisco Quilt Guild member, Michelle Trimble to teach Stunning Improv Sunbursts Workshop.


Class Time & Location

Dates: 9/14/24 AND 10/5/24 (This is a 2-session class)

1:00pm to 4:00pm

Coastside Quilt Studio, 1305 Palmetto Avenue, Unit E, Pacifica


Working with improv can be wonderfully freeing for some, yet the outcome can seem a little overwhelming to the senses of others. You can have your cake and eat it too! Choosing constraints at the outset of an improv project can not only lower the decision-making burden that can seem overwhelming, it can also ensure your composition finishes with dramatic flair. In this class, you will explore several different variations of improv triangles, and experiment with variables that will alter the look of each variation. You will then incorporate these blocks into a large wedge layout to make a 24” square wall hanging.

NOTE: This class is for intermediate quilters. Students are expected to be comfortable using a rotary cutter and sewing a 1/4" seam.

  • 1/2 yd focus print (optional)
  • 1/2 yd each 6-8 solid or blender fabrics
  • Matching or neutral thread

Classroom Tools Supplied:

  • Fabric scissors
  • Rotary cutters

About Michelle

Michelle Trimble pieced her first quilt in college, but waited 20 years to finish it in 2018. Once she rediscovered her love of quilting, she hasn't looked back! She is an active member of both the San Francisco Quilt Guild and Silicon Valley Modern Quilt Guild. Her quilts have hung in national shows such as QuiltCon and AQS Paducah, and won ribbons in local and national quilt shows. She enjoys designing with bold colors and design elements to maximize the "wow" factor, and loves teaching others skills that will help them reach their quilting goals.
