Come design with me!
Join me, Rebecca, as we learn all about using elements of graphic design as they apply to quilt making. Learn my design secrets as I guide you through interactive lessons that not only teach you about graphic design, but allow you to experience the process of designing your own triangle blocks.
You'll finish the course with a new set of design tools you can immediately apply to your own quilt designs.
If you've thought, "I wish could design, but I'm not sure where to start." Or, "I'm in a design rut." Then this is the workshop for you!
Learn my design secrets in this interative course guiding you through 8 weeks of lessons aimed at teaching principles of graphic design. Each lesson delivers content and exercises geared at providing a solid design foundation you can apply right away to your own quilt designs.
You'll have lifetime access to video lessons, articles, hands on activities, weekly Virtual Open Studios via teleconference, a workbook, and a community of quilters.
A Virtual Classroom
Content is presented both through videos and articles and video format through our virtual classroom. Class begins September 22nd but you'll have lifetime access to the classroom once we wrap.
Experience designing your own blocks with interactive activities for each lesson.
Connect with a diverse community of makers and quilters in the Virtual Classroom.
I will be online daily checking in and answering questions. So all questions will be answered within 48 hours, if not 24 hours. For the "Full Package" course option, I will be hosting an Virtual Open Studio via Teleconference where I'll teach a mini lesson on the past week's lesson and take your questions live.
5 New Triangle Patterns
Of course, you'll be having so much fun experimenting with coming up with your own triangle designs. But I wouldn't want you to miss out having these new triangle patterns.
Along with the lessons online, you'll get a PDF workbook to keep.

What skill level is required?
Think of this workshop as a workshop geared toward experienced quilters with little graphic design experience.
There is no quilting technique covered in this workshop. I would say a confident and resourceful beginner might be ok. You definitely want to have some solid knowledge of your favorite techniques.

Yep! I'll be providing feedback on each of the exercises that you post.
My goal is to provide feedback within 48 hours, if not 24 hours.
Do I need any special design software?
Do need any art or design background?
Nope, I'll teach you!

You will have access to all the classes as soon as each class is released. So, if you go on vacation and miss a class, no worries! The class will be there for you when you are ready.
Dangit! I have to miss this workshop. Will you be offering this class again?
You betcha! The self guide version will be available whenever you are ready. I'll be offering an instructor guided version starting in January 2018.
