Anne is a member of the Orlando MQG, and has a true gift for designing and creating modern intentionally-designed and improvisational quilts. You'll find her quilts as free patterns offered through the MQG (link here, and here, to MQG members), and she has shared her approach to creative designs on this episode of season two of Fresh Quilting TV.
You won't want to miss this opportunity to learn from the best of the MQG!
Twenty members of our Central Florida MQG chapter will have the opportunity to take Anne's "Design As You Go" workshop on Monday afternoon, June 11, from 12:45-3:45 pm.
Anne will explain and discuss aspects of design elements and principles, that we’ll put to work creating an improvisational mini-quilt. Improvisation is an ongoing design exercise, where you design-as-you-go, constantly modifying what happens next based on what you’ve done before. By learning some design concepts, it gives you much more power over your improvisational quilt and get it closer to your desired vision. Anne will also review techniques for cutting and piecing improvisational shapes either with or without a ruler, including gentle curves.
Our workshop is at Amazing Grace Lutheran Church, 4886 County Road 472 (Rainey Trail), Oxford.
The cost is $40 to members with registrations being accepted at the April 16 meeting. Or, if you're unable to attend the meeting, send payment to our post office box: PO Box 1355, Lady Lake, FL 32158.
