Route



Great pictorial quilts begin with a well composed photographs. As with photographs, good composition in a pictorial quilt requires attention to the basic features that shape the quilt design and thus affect how we view it. This workshop will begin with the principles of photo composition as they relate to pieced quilt design. We consider how line and shape interact visually in the images brought to class by each student and then practice some basic composition principles by taking a series of digital photographs.

We then explore the concept of Gesture in relation to the design process. Each student then chooses from among her/his photos to develop a pieced quilt design and will work with unexpected fabric selections to bring these original quilt designs to life.

Despite having no sewing skills to speak of, Ann Shaw began making Cathedral Window quilts in the 1980s. She loved the idea that with folded muslin, bits of colorful patterned fabric, and a basic whip stitch - one could create wonderful, elegant quilts. Ann's pictorial quilts use piecing techniques to create an abstract interpretation of the photo or object.
