“My work is about color and small compositions. Each block in a quilt is made as its own element, independent of the other blocks. After all of the blocks are constructed, my goal is to arrange the small compositions to play off each other and work together to create a larger whole. What keeps me engaged is watching how the project changes and transforms with the addition of each color and texture.”

Timna Tarr comes from a long line of quilters but did not begin quilting until after studying art history in college. She bought her first longarm in 2001 and began quilting clients' quilts shortly thereafter. Since then she has custom designed and quilted thousands of quilts. Timna’s own nationally award-winning quilts are in private and corporate collections and have been seen in numerous exhibits, quilting magazines, and books. She is an in-demand speaker and teacher throughout the northeastern United States and is a member of her local guilds, Hands Across the Valley Quilters Guild and the Northampton Modern Quilt Guild.

Timna is known for making fun, colorful, award-winning quilts. Join her in this trunk show of her quilting journey where she'll talk about her design and color choices Hopefully she will make you laugh, and not just because she shows her dreaded "first quilt".

Class: “Designing with Flying Colors & Improvisational Piecing”
Instructor: Timna Tarr
Date:July 11, 2017

In this all-day workshop you will have the opportunity to learn how to design with color as well as experiment and improvise your own piece!In the first part of the workshop you will learn about designing with colors. Are you stuck in a color rut? Or are you afraid that you might make a color “mistake” in your quilt? Timna will teach us about designing with color and trying new color combinations as well as how to use color placement as a major design element in your quilt. This portion of the workshop does not involve any sewing but does allow you to play with six-inch fabric squares from your stash!

During the second part of the workshop you will learn to let loose with your piecing! Timna will share her tips and tricks for creating your own improvised piece. This part of the workshop will be packed with experimenting and trying new techniques where you will receive instruction on composing and piecing your own spontaneous project together into a quilt top as well as real time problem solving!
