Heather Jones Workshop

From Inspiration to Design with Heather Jones
Saturday, April 21, 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM



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.

 Students will
-learn how to translate visual inspiration into sketchbook drawings
-learn how to design a block or quilt based on their inspiration
-learn how to calculate yardage for pattern pieces
-create their own unique quilt pattern

Location:
3112 W 28th St
Minneapolis MN 55416-4384

This is just off the Kennilworth Bike Path in Minneapolis, near Lake Bde Maka Ska, Uptown/Lake Street and Cedar Lake. Because of the location and no need to bring a sewing machine, this presents a rare opportunity to bike to a quilt workshop. There is also ample parking and a park across the street. Make sure to plan accordingly for lunch, as there aren't many options nearby.

Cost:
MMQG Members:  $80 for one workshop
Non-Members:  $100 for one workshop

We have spots for 20 participants, and spots are first come/first served. Participants will need to bring their own supplies (supply list will be available soon).
