LEARN HOW TO DESIGN YOUR OWN QUILT BLOCKS
This is an ecourse to take wherever you live, in the comfort of your own home. It is for quilters used to using a computer, who want to try something new or are looking for inspiration. You will know how to use your computer and you will need Photoshop installed for some of the blocks. For others you need a drawing program. The work is drawing on a computer, creating colour combinations, creating a series of mix and match blocks using geometric shapes and options for how to print them.
It is ideal for all levels of quilters, even beginners and includes ideas that you can adapt to make your own personal quilt. We will be working creatively, so you should be able to take each block as a starting point for you to create many more ideas. The potential is only limited by your imagination.
Each month, you will receive an email with instructions that give a starting point for your own design.
Tutor guidance and access is given throughout – although it is limited to 30 mins per month.
You will also be able to upload work from the course onto a special closed fb page – where we will discuss work. You will receive notes, guidance, a mini booklet with monthly instructions to keep for future reference.
The aim of the course is to create and design your own quilt blocks using a computer and to print them out and stitch. You are designing each block. This is not a set block that you copy. You have the option to be able to design numerous blocks from this ecourse and make many quilts.
