Quilters tend to see patterns everywhere: at the flower stand, in a city's architecture, in the fencing around a playground. Many of us do a quick sketch or snap a picture of these patterns for future reference. But what happens next?
In this free webinar, Creative Eye Opener: Turning Your Casual Photos into Patchwork
, Christina Lane and Diane Gilleland will show you how to use those images as inspiration to create patchwork patterns. The live event will be held August 6, 2013, 3 p.m. EDT. (19:00 GMT)
Here's what you will learn in this fun and informative tutorial:
- First we'll look at a group of casual snapshots for patterns.
- Next, Christina and Diane will show you how to translate those patterns into shapes in fabric.
- Then, they will demonstrate how to turn your finished patchwork piece into a lovely removable cover for a standard-size Moleskine-style sketchbook.
There will be plenty of time to ask Diane and Christina questions about the process.
More about the presenters: Christina Lane and Diane Gilleland are co-authors of the forthcoming book Quilting Happiness, a collection of projects, tools, exercises, interviews, and quizzes that explores how quilting makes people happy.
