Embark on a Nine-Month Journey of Creative Discovery
Quiltfolk’s Break the Rules BoM is a nine-month expedition into the heart of creative quilting. It’s not just about learning new techniques; it’s about weaving your personal narrative into every stitch! Beloved workshop hosts and instructors Jenni Smith and Kay Walsh, accompanied by author and collector Roderick Kiracofe (as well as other renowned guest mentors known for their trailblazing approaches), will guide you through a transformative learning and sewing experience—bending the rules of color, composition, and construction. Together, they will offer pathways, tools, and lots of encouragement to empower you to venture beyond the ordinary and create a truly exceptional project of your very own.
Anyone can join the rebellion, no matter how mild—or wild—you choose to be!
Our Inspiration & Unofficial Textbook
In 2021, Quiltfolk had the great honor of co-publishing the expanded second edition of Roderick Kiracofe’s hardcover coffee table book Unconventional & Unexpected: American Quilts Below the Radar, 1950-2000. With the first edition being an instant classic, we loved immersing ourselves in the 170+ quilts featured within, as their personality, intrigue, and mystery breaks with tradition. But what really captured our imagination was how they strayed … where makers took the liberty to sew outside the lines. Were these intentional departures? We may never know for sure. But one thing we do know: To this day, we continue to be mesmerized by these quilts, and we know we are not alone in that feeling. Thousands of quilters around the world have raved about the inspiration and creative freedom they find in these timeless treasures.
We are thrilled to share that Unconventional & Unexpected will act as the unofficial textbook for our all-new, groundbreaking BoM that challenges you to stretch yourself beyond the conventional norms of the “perfect” quilt.
