Quilting Beyond the Design



Quilting Beyond the Design

Begin with a basic design from a stencil, a ruler or template, an applique, a fabric print, a cookie cutter or a shape you draw yourself. Then, learn to transform that design from basic to spectacular by extending, expanding, and adding secondary designs, repeats, fills and special effects. Learn marking techniques and tools for applying designs to quilt tops.

TOPICS INCLUDE:
• How to mark and use stencils as design foundations
• How to transfer doodles from paper to quilting
• Enhance a design with fillers and embellishments
• Use marked grids as a design foundation and road map
• Draw inspiration from fabric prints

Instructor: Patty Holley
Instructor Bio: Patty began quilting in 2000 when her husband was stationed in Germany during military service. Her early projects were hand quilted, and took a long time to finish. As she and her husband continued to relocate to new duty stations, she continued to quilt, and eventually landed in Arizona. After leaving her teaching career, Patty started working at her local quilt shop, a Handi Quilter retailer. While working at the shop, Patty was able to see the awesome customer service that Handi Quilter provides on both the consumer and retail side, and she is proud to be a Handi Quilter Educator. Patty is a member of her local quilt guild and has entered several of her quilts in their shows. Patty thoroughly enjoys quilting on her HQ Avant??, with Pro-Stitcher ?. She and her husband have two grown children and two grandsons. When she isn?t quilting, she enjoys traveling, reading and going to movies.
