gather here Classes

Thanks to the Cambridge Modern Quilt Guild, Heather Jones will be teaching her popular workshop, "Inspiration to Design".
Bring your inspiration to life as you create a one of a kind unique quilt pattern. Work with Heather to create a quilt pattern that is inspired by something you have seen: an old building, a water tower, the sunset, etc. In this class, we’ll be using a photograph of your inspiration as a starting point and will create a quilt design based on that inspiration. Heather will guide you through the process of sketching, designing pattern pieces, calculating yardage and construction methods, creating a color palette, and fabric selection. You’ll leave the class with a complete pattern that is ready to be constructed in your home studio.
Note: there is no sewing in this workshop. This is a 7 hour workshop with a lunch break.

Students will
  • learn how to translate visual inspiration into sketchbook drawings
  • learn how to design a block or quilt based on their inspiration
  • learn how to calculate yardage for pattern pieces
  • create their own unique quilt pattern
