THURSDAY, Oct. 25th, 2018: FULL DAY CLASS 9 AM to 12 PM and 2 PM to 5 PM
Starting with your own sharp photo of a pet,
flower, or landscape, I'll teach you how to make a pattern for quilt that is uniquely
Through discussion of each student's project, we'll
touch on perspective, level of detail needed to communicate an image, what
needs to be included in the pattern and what may be added later through fabric
selection or with quilting, embroidery, pens, or paint.
At the end of the day, we will discuss how to use
the pattern to make a quilt.
NOTE: Students who complete a pattern in this
class may wish to take Betsy’s workshop "Piecing a Picture Quilt".
