In this class your will explore the use of colors, shapes and lines as the defining elements of design as you build the quilt blocks and arrange them to construct a completed quilt top, or finished quilt. The class will involve a short 10-15 instruction period each day with the remainder of the class period serving as your time to design, cut and construct your quilt blocks. Once you have warmed up to the process, you will be challenged with making a very large collection of blocks, a pallet, so to speak from which you will work in constructing your quilt top. The pace will move quickly allowing for your creative intuition to be your guide, overriding any learned habits of mind such as overthinking, doubt and fear of the unknown. This will result in a new way of looking at the art of quilts and perhaps influence the way you see world.
There will be homework in-between two session, so be prepared to do some extra sewing (like we had to twist your arm!).
