Online Lecture by David Owen Hastings – “Minimal Design, Maximum Impact”

David Owen Hasting’s lecture at the Saturday May 22 Quilt Day meeting is titled “Minimal Design, Maximum Impact.” The modern quilting movement is evolving and changing, but one thing remains consistent: simple, spare design combined with thoughtful quilting make an outstanding combination. The lecture includes an overview of David’s process for coming up with simple graphic quilt designs, starting with stitched paper models (called maquette). Examples are provided showing how he also takes inspiration from architecture. The techniques he presents are also great for making unique modern quilt block designs, and finally he shares his approach to walking foot quilting. This lecture is meant to provide inspiration for people who might be intrigued by the modern, minimal esthetic, but don’t know how to get started.
