Inspiration to Design Workshop with the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild

Patch Reef Park Community Center
2000 Yamato Road
Boca Raton, FL 33431


Bring your inspiration to life as you create a one of a kind unique quilt pattern. Work with Heather to create a quilt pattern that is inspired by something you have seen: an old building, a water tower, the sunset, etc. In this class, we’ll be using a photograph of your inspiration as a starting point and will create a quilt design based on that inspiration. Heather will guide you through the process of sketching, designing pattern pieces, calculating yardage and construction methods, creating a color palette, and fabric selection. You’ll leave the class with a complete pattern that is ready to be constructed in your home studio.

Note: there is no sewing in this workshop.

Students will

  • learn how to translate visual inspiration into sketchbook drawings
  • learn how to design a block or quilt based on their inspiration
  • learn how to calculate yardage for pattern pieces
  • create their own unique quilt pattern
