Working with Large Scale Prints

Many quilters love large-scale prints but find it challenging to combine them effectively with other prints. Under Bill Kerr's direction, students will learn the design concepts behind using large-scale prints and how to show them off to their best advantage. Students will begin making our "Follow the Leader" quilt or a project of their choice if they already have something in mind. The Modern Quilt Studio patterns and magazines all ship for free to US destinations, so please order in advance to make sure you have what you need for class.

  • Student supplies needed: sewing machine, rotary cutting equipment, an assortment of large-scale cotton quilting prints as well as a variety of small-scale prints, tone-on-tone prints and solids, extension cord, thread, seam ripper, notebook or journal, and any supplies you like to have handy when quilting.

  • If students wish to make the "Follow the Leader" quilt with their own fabrics, they will need 2 1/2 yards off-white or other field fabric, 1 yard tan or other fabric for links & binding and a 1/4 yard cut or one Fat Quarter each of 10 prints.

  • Skill level: Adventurous beginner to advanced
