Help Me to Design A Quilt!

Friday, June 23, 2017 | 9:00 am – 4:00 pm • All levels

Find your inspiration while creating with Pam Holland in this imaginatively moving class.

"As quilters, we like to be able to design something totally our own.  But how do you go about it?

I've been teaching this class for many years, but it changes each year as I design new genres.  So this will be a totally new ideas class.

First of all, we will study a single block quilt - and I ask you to think of something simple that you will design.  I used a photo of a poppy head for this one.  We will also look at creating a medallion quilt and then an art quilt”.  – Pam Holland

"This is a fun project that I add onto as I travel.  “To be honest the first of these little quilts were inspired by a trip to Nepal”. – Pam Holland

In this fun and imaginative class you can add your own bits and pieces to the project.  Look for re-purposed fabrics and old linens, fabric from your travels or old cloths.  Look for interesting thread as you travel, beads work well too! We will work together to create a quilt from what you bring.
