Designing Modern Quilts

with Weeks Ringle
Designing Modern Quilts
Gain fresh perspectives on color, prints, patterns and modern quilt construction with Weeks Ringle of Modern Quilt Studio.

Learn to design quilts that reflect our times. Weeks provides the tools necessary to scratch your expressive itch, offering fresh perspectives on color, prints, patterns and quilt construction. The class includes five "explorations" that will tap your creativity and expand your approach to designing quilts. Weeks also shares her brainstorm-in-a-box approach to finding design inspiration in surprising places. Along with her partner Bill Kerr, Weeks has pioneered the art of modern quilting over the last 13 years, writing books, publishing Modern Quilt Studio magazine and designing over 100 fabrics. This theory-based class also serves as a retrospective of Bill and Weeks' work, showcasing nearly 50 quilts, including Weeks' never-displayed-before first attempt at modern quilting.

"I absolutely LOVED this class ... It's obvious that Weeks put an enormous amount of time and deeply conscientious effort into compiling the lessons and discussions around design, color and what professional designers think about as they create. ... This class was a gift I gave myself and believe me, I'll talk it up to the people I meet! Absolutely tremendous."
