The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat offers a comprehensive quilt curriculum for all quilters. This customized event will teach, encourage, inspire, and will most certainly keep you entertained. Ricky demystifies seemingly complex concepts, and teaches mastery of unique techniques. The sessions cover improvisational patchwork, no-pins precision curved piecing, design guidelines, color theory, dyeing basics, and machine quilting tips that work for both domestic and long arm. You will learn beautiful outline appliqué and innovative piecing techniques—most of which don’t require a quarter-inch seam! Ricky’s goal is to change how you think when it comes to quilting. He will help you to reevaluate your quilting experience and give you the ability to define who you are as a quilter. The seminar will benefit all quilters—beginners or experienced—traditional or art. In addition to the methods and techniques being taught, there will be plenty of fun projects/patterns for you to consider.
