Modern Quilting Class

More Composing with Line with Jacquie Gering

September 10th – 13th, 2020 • $965.00

Ready to take your design skills to the next level? Join Jacquie Gering September 10 – 13, 2020 for a weekend focused on composing with line. Line may be the most fundamental of the elements of design. Working with line seems deceptively simple yet lines are so versatile and the possibilities so diverse that there is much to learn about, experiment with, and create with line.

This class will continue our exploration of line with a new set of exercises to explore linear design potential and dedicated time to create with guidance and support from Jacquie and your classmates. We will review the design principles of line and dig deeper into compositional structures and additional sewing techniques to support construction of linear designs. Students will work on developing multiple design ideas for projects as well as creating small studies that may become larger pieces at home.

In addition to the skills you will hone and the designs you will add to your quilting toolbox, the weekend will be filled with fun, camaraderie and extra events to round out the weekend.

This class is designed for the intermediate quilter who wants to explore linear design in a supportive, open environment. An adventurous spirit, curiosity and a willingness to try will help you get the most out of the weekend. It will be helpful if you have taken the first Composing With Line class, but it is not a requirement.
