David Owen Hastings
Inspired by Art
Starting with a favorite work of art, develop your own unique modern quilt design. Be inspired by shapes, colors, structure, or the feeling you get and design a block or whole quilt with an eye on modern minimalism
Bring your own photo of a work of art, and we will explore the many ways you can take inspiration from it to develop your own quilt block or full quilt design. We will break down the image to its most basic elements, create a rough drawing, then start building a test block using improv techniques. David will demonstrate sewing curves without pins, and without fear.

Dancing with the Wall: Improv Irene-style
I begin by placing a scrap of fabric in the center of my design wall and then grow the quilt one element at a time, responding to each “step” until it feels balanced, interesting and joyful. When I begin, I do not know what is going to happen but create through trial and error, literally dancing between the wall, the cutting mat, the sewing machine and the iron. Through this act of making, I have learned to embrace the joy of creative intuition, spontaneous expression, and a blind trust in process.

In this workshop you will learn the concept of building an improvised mosaic quilt, using improvised log cabin blocks. You will create enough blocks to make a 20” x 20” or 24” x 24” pillow top or wall hanging, using the "medium” scale blocks (6”, 3”, 2”). This workshop is now open for enrollment.
Cost: $55 members only
