Inspiration for quilt patterns is everywhere, but converting those ideas into quilts can be intimidating. In Translating Inspiration in Quilting, you’ll learn how to take an image, a floor, a pattern, or a stack of fabric and turn it into a beautiful quilt.
In this class, Cheryl Arkison will teach you how to take something that inspires you – a shape, color or line – and turn it into workable quilting elements. You'll learn about both literal translations (copying shape, color, line) and how to use influences of what you love from an image to enhance your quilts. Cheryl will teach you how to effectively capture ideas so you can refer to them in the future and she’ll show you some sketchbook basics for making notes by hand.
This class will give you the tools to bring your imaginative ideas to fruition and equip you to make truly inspired quilts.
Cheryl is a quilter, writer, and mom. She writes and teaches on quilting, craft, creativity, food, and family. And it all comes from her dining room empire in her crowded, colourful house. From this space she wrote her first book,
I have taken all three of Cheryl's classes and she is an excellent instructor. Amazing. She is clear, engaging, non-judgmental, informative and has a ton of quality suggestions. Can't say enough about her! I hope that she does more courses in the future. Thanks very much, Cheryl and Creative Live. Very inspiring.
