Quilts you design are a great complement to the wonderful range of traditional (and modern!) quilts that entice us. Our most memorable quilts are often those that speak to special times, places, things, and people in our lives.
Using your photographs as the place to begin the design process offers a personalized and memorable look to your quilts. Based on the design methods developed by Ruth McDowell, this class takes you through the design process – from photo to pictorial quilt. This style of quilt emphasizes the use of patterned cotton fabrics in unique ways yet is grounded in traditional piecing methods. The result is a quilt design with a somewhat abstract quality that is uniquely your own.
This course is best suited for the confident beginner to advanced student.
