Quilt Design 101 by Lorna Shapiro
This two-day workshop is for quilters who have created quilts from patterns and are moving on to designing their own quilts. Theory and technique are integrated throughout the workshop, allowing participants to: 1) gain a theoretical framework from which to evaluate and improve upon their quilt designs, 2) experience a design process that supports the evolution and refining of a quilt design, and 3) learn new sewing techniques that allow a broader range of elements to be incorporated in their quilt designs.
On day one participants will develop a strong design concept incorporating their chosen fabric selection. Between days one and two of the workshop, participants will refine their design, assemble the complete set of fabric that may be used in the quilt, and possibly start creating some elements of the final design. On day two of the workshop participants will progress from refined design on paper to the final design cut and positioned on their design wall, with some portion of the quilt actually assembled.
