Inspired by Architecture
Full-Day Workshop

12 pm - 6 pm EDT, Saturday, August 14

Architecture is full of inspiration for modern quilt designs! Working from photos of architectural details as inspiration, David will guide you through the steps to design a modern abstract fabric quilt. You’ll learn how to break a photo down into elemental shapes, explore different compositions, and map out pattern pieces for a mini quilt. 

We’ll discuss color, value, and what makes a successful modern palette. You will learn the quilt-as-you-go technique, sewing all the layers simultaneously, and incorporate the quilted line as a major design element. Most students will complete a couple of minis in class, and David will demonstrate a great face binding technique for a polished finish.
