Combining discussion, sketching, and design wall group activity, Yvonne will walk you through considerations and her design process for creating transparency quilt designs. She will have examples of her work that range from unsuccessful to successful, and the workshop will explore color value, solid versus print fabrics, monochromatic versus color wheel progression, and the difference between transparency and ombré design.
The workshop is not geared toward supporting a specific design software (Electric Quilt, Illustrator, Inkscape, etc.), but it is structured as a hands-on, visual approach to considering design through using pencil and paper and fabric on a design wall. The workshop is beneficial to quilters with budding quilt design interest, quilters looking to improve their fabric selection and color sense confidence, and any quilter with a love for geometry and exploration of how shapes interact to create compelling design.
