Elements of Design

Good design starts with the basic elements like color, texture, line, and shape. Develop an understanding of what you see and what you like, and apply it to your quilts - traditional, art, modern, and contemporary. This lecture features real life examples of the elements in action on quilts and offers solutions to common design problems.

Discovering Found Objects

Learn to look at everyday objects with an eye to adding them to art quilts. Paper, wire, metal, plastic, natural and manmade objects can be unique embellishments and can help your quilts tell a story.
