Patricia Simons is mostly known in the quilting world as part of Quilter's Rule.  She is now traveling and teaching people how to be creative and make quilting designs with rulers.  The following is the lecture for the morning and the afternoon is a hands on class.

Unlocking Your Creativity

Ever dream of being able to create your own quilting designs?  Are you convinced the Artistic fairy bypassed you when she was handing out talent?  Join Patricia as she shows you how to move templates to create stunning designs that look complicated, but are in reality the simplest of shapes.  She will teach you four techniques for moving templates.  These techniques can be used by all, regardless of your method of quilting (hand, domestic machine, long-, mid-, or short-arm machine).  How to transfer the design to your quilt using a variety of methods will be discussed.  Join Patricia in learning how to release the creativity inside you.  You've got a wonderful design, but, oh my, it has some rather large open spots.  You need something, but what?  How about a fill?  Oh no, I'm not creative...I don't do freehand....ACKKK!  Solutions - grab a template.  Create your own fill!  Learn how to use templates to fill a space with a variety of different looks all by using different templates.  Included in the discussion will be non-traditional Crosshatching.  No artistic talent needed!  All quilters welcome regardless of method of quilting (hand, domestic-machine, long-, mid-, or short-arm machine).

Do It Yourself Design
Hands On Class

Wouldn't if be nice to be the creator of a design that people ohhed and ahhed over?  Explore the creative possibilities templates open for those of use who cannot draw.  No artistic talent needed!  Hands on drawing class where you will be doing the drawing yourself!

This requires an additional $33.00 material fee to be paid to the instructor.  (This fee is not included in the class fee.)

Things to bring to class:
Pen, Drawing Paper, Pencil, Note Paper

Quilter's Rule will be bringing their complete line of rulers.  So, if you are in need of any rulers, make of note of which ones you need so you will be ready to purchase the day of class.
