Description of Presentation
Shop from Your Stash: The Joy of Symmetry
Fabric. We love it, we buy it and then we can’t figure out what to do with it. All fabric has a pattern. But if you look closer, there is often a pattern within a pattern. And maybe even a pattern within a pattern within a pattern. Once you know what you have, you can combine these patterns in a variety of symmetries to make amazing blocks and quilts. So on your next project, you’ll have the confidence to shop from your stash.
About Karen Brown
Nearly 15 years ago Karen began to quilt to escape from work stress. Beginning with minor knowledge of quilting, it wasn’t until Karen joined a stitch’n’chat group with her cousin that she gained confidence to finish her first sampler quilt. With the quilt top completed, she wanted to utilize all the scraps and orphan blocks, thus creating her first AFTERQUILT improv project.
Karen realized her tastes were more modern, so she joined the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild. She has participated in two Quiltcons, making numerous friends along the way. She also began making more complicated quilts; gaining new skills with each project.
In 2018, Karen volunteered to make a video for a guild block lotto challenge. Even though she didn’t know how to film and edit, she was committed to the process and teaching herself filmmaking. These videos lead to her popular YouTube channel, Just Get it Done Quilts which is all about helping quilters decipher all the rules and mix messages they receive.
Today, Just Get It Done Quilts has over 250k subscribers and 15 million views. Weekly, she shares on her channel her tips, tricks and strategies to help you tidy up your sewing space, use up your stash and deal with your UFO’s.
She also has expanded her channel with an interview series Karen’s Quilt Circle bringing in guests from around the world. They share their expertise, their challenges and of course their love of quilting.
In this rapidly changing world, Karen is committed to help fellow quilters find the calm in their hobby, recharge and empower them, so they can be the best quilter they can be.
