We have David Own Hastings joining us to talk about Minimal Design, Maximum Impact. 

ABOUT DAVID

I’m a quilter, graphic designer, print and textile artist, and a former President of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. I create contemporary art and modern minimal quilt and textile designs. My creative approach to modern quilting has led to a busy schedule of workshops and lectures on quilting, branding for artists, art and textile techniques.

The modern quilting movement is evolving and changing, but one thing remains consistent: simple, spare design combined with thoughtful quilting make an outstanding combination.

David will give us an overview of his process for coming up with simple graphic quilt designs, starting with stitched paper models (called maquettes). He’ll show examples of how to translate an architectural photo into a quilt design. The techniques he’lI present are also great for making unique modern quilt block designs as well as tips on how to break free of stitch in the ditch walking foot quilting. 

The guild with the ZOOM call in details will come soon. 

If you haven’t already – please send your show & tell photos to Programs@njmqg.com, with “ March Show & Tell” in the subject line…Send us pics of your QuiltCon projects, in progress BOM (Block of the Month) blocks and anything else you are working on.

If you are participating in the Mini Mod Swap – don’t forget to make your donation . Please contact us if you are having any PayPal issues.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

If you would like to be a guest at our meeting this month, please email us for the Zoom information.
