Want to make your own modern abstract quilt designs? Inspired by minimal quilts, but don’t know how to start? Over this two-day online class, David Owen Hastings will guide you through a creative process for designing your own modern abstract quilts.
Day 1 (6 hours): Explore composition
Day 2 (6 hours): Using one of your paper quilts as a roadmap, David will guide you through the steps to translate your ideas into a mini fabric quilt. We will use the quilt-as-you-go method. David will demonstrate face-binding your quilt, which gives a modern finish, as well as how to join multiple quilted blocks. Your mini quilt can be the final product (frame it, hang it, or make a pillow cover later), or it can be a test piece for a larger quilt.
Skill Level: All skill levels welcome! Experience using a walking foot attachment is helpful. You should be comfortable using your sewing machine, and it should be in good working order.

David Owen Hastings has been knitting and sewing since he was a kid. There is something magical in taking a length of yarn or a piece of fabric and turning it into something useful and beautiful with your own hands. It is enchanting. He is one of the believers that crafts like knitting and quilting can be both artistic expressions as well as good for the soul. In recent years, he has enjoyed creating some of his own textiles through dyeing and painting. David loves to incorporate these fabrics into quilts and wall pieces with a modern twist. He also offers workshops and lectures on quilting projects and design techniques, fabric printing, artist branding, and advancing your own creativity. Take a look at his quilts, lectures and workshops.
