"Subtracting for Minimalism" Workshop

This past Saturday, a group of our members thoroughly enjoyed a workshop with Cheryl Brickey called "Subtracting for Minimalism".

Cheryl spent the morning explaining the idea of starting with a simple quilt pattern and then taking away elements randomly, to create a modern, minimalistic quilt. She offered several options for design, including EQ8, Power Point and pencil and paper. She then showed us how to turn our designs into a pattern to make a quilt.

With pencil and paper, we all played with a Flying Geese block and each person came up with their unique design.

Cheryl was full of advice and ideas as we designed.

In the afternoon, we were able to take our designs to fabric and get a start on making our own minimalist Flying Geese quilt.

It was an inspiring and fun workshop and we all left with a great, new design tool!

Thank you, Cheryl! You can find more from Cheryl on her website, Meadow Mist Designs.
