Modern quilts pack a lot of WOW factor but can seem intimidating. Explore effective approaches of tackling these modern beauties by utilizing a whole quilt layout method that will be overlaid on a photo of the quilt. Designing digitally will allow you to design elements on the same scale as the piecing and use methods and patterns that you already know. Design a roadmap of all the quilting designs that you will use ahead of time. The designs will be broken down into ‘stitchable’ sections to maximize your throat space. Tools and features highlighted in this class include Import Image; Draw line/arc; Fill; Boundaries; Apply and Relocate. This class will be taught in SAM. This class will include an in-depth discussion of what makes a modern quilt; design approaches appropriate for modern quilts; and guidance on choosing the ‘right’ pattern(s).
