David Owen Hastings

The modern quilting movement is evolving and changing, but one thing remains consistent: simple, spare design combined with thoughtful quilting make an outstanding combination.  David will present his process for coming up with simple graphic quilt designs, starting with stitched paper models (called maquettes). Examples of how to translate an architectural photo into a quilt design will be shown with samples of mini quilts created using this process. The techniques are also great for making unique modern quilt block designs. There will also be a discussion about walking foot quilting and how to break free from "stitch-in-the-ditch."
