Ever wonder what attributes of design make quilts go from pretty to stunning? Join me as we do a 2 part class. Three hours in the morning will be devoted to studying the features of design which make quilts great. We'll discuss making the most of negative (AKA empty!) space, marking tools, and which combinations of designs work best together (and why!). Then, each student will create their design for a lovely vintage quilt top, with assistance from me. In the afternoon, we will execute these designs on the longarm, learning the proper order for quilting the many motifs. For students who have previously taken my "A is for Applique" class, this is very similar.

Part 1 - 8:30am - 11:30am (drawing)
Part 2 - 1pm - 5pm (hands-on)
