      • Description: Bring your inspiration to life as you create a one of a kind unique quilt pattern. Work with Heather to create a quilt pattern that is inspired by something you have seen: an old building, a water tower, the sunset, etc. In this class, we’ll be using a photograph of your inspiration as a starting point and will create a quilt design based on that inspiration. Heather will guide you through the process of sketching, designing pattern pieces, calculating yardage and construction methods, creating a color palette, and fabric selection. You’ll leave the class with a complete pattern that is ready to be constructed in your home studio.
