Victoria Findlay Wolfe

Victoria Findlay Wolfe grew up in Minnesota, is trained in fine arts, and loves painting, sculpting, and photography. She is not happy unless she is making something, and quilts are her greatest passion.

Greatly influenced by her grandmother’s crazy quilts, she learned her sense of color while buried under them in the cold Minnesota winters. After spending time in New York pursuing her painting, she came back to sewing and started a quilting blog.

Victoria’s approach to quilting is influenced by her drawing, using warm-up exercises to play with her ideas. She says “inevitably” a quilt idea emerges from these exercises. She loves quilting for others, and feels it keeps her attached to the people who live with it.

Workshop

Cascade

September 19, 9:30AM-4:30PM

Cascade is Victoria’s very popular quilt from her Modern Quilt Magic book. The class time is spent talking about design. The construction technique  is based on slight curve piecing and understanding bias. It consists of a discussion on what kind of fabrics the students have brought and helping them find a direction to go. The light to dark version is only one possibility, and we work with what fabric is available.  We talk about all the possibilities! The pattern is full of surprises and options!

Supply list

This workshop has limited enrollment available. Please email programs@nsqg.club to find out if there’s still space available, or to be added to the wait list.
