The log cabin block is so very versatile, we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition, overlay a grid, this can be an even grid, an uneven grid, curved or random grid, this linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then log cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and then put together to make the quilt.Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value and visual pathways.
No class refund in the event you are unable to attend.
All levels are welcome.
Inspiration photos, landscapes, flowers, anything that inspires you.
Fabrics: full values of the colors found in the inspiration photo. You will be making a wall quilt
no larger than 24 x 36. You need lots of choices of fabrics in long 1/8th s or more, the more
choices the better. You can cut your strips before class if you want. 1 ? ? strips works well but
if you want more variety and less uniform look you can cut several sizes. 1 inch 1 ? and 1 ?
inch strips of all of the colors. If you are unsure you can cut your strips the first morning of class.
Bring several uncut colors to use for centers which can be up to two inches wide. All of this
depends on your inspiration photo and the grid you choose to lay over it. But don?t stress just
bring lots of fabric. (and then add even more, Most students wish they had more choices once
they get started!)
