The Relationship Between Drawing and Quilting







It is difficult for most quilters to understand how much a drawing class can help their quilting. In this lecture, I talk about the concepts of drawing and how acquiring some basic knowledge can help all quilters. The concepts I will be discussing are:

  • Line

  • Negative Space and Positive Shapes

  • Light and Shadow

  • Perspective

In order for the audience to better understand how these concepts can help them, I will show slides of both traditional and contemporary quilts that illustrate a good use of line, negative spaces, light and shadow or perspective. These quilts are made by a wide variety of quilters from the USA and Europe.

Teacher Needs:

  • Digital projector (with extension cord if needed)

  • Microphone

  • Screen

  • 2 - 3 quilt racks or quilt stands

  • 3 tables for supplies
