#35105, Artful Log Cabins

Day: Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Van Buren Room
Teacher: Katie Pasquini Masopust
Level: Advanced

The Log Cabin block is so very versatile we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition or overlay a grid, that can be an even grid, an uneven grid, a curved, or a random grid. This linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then Log Cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value, and visual pathways.

Abstract watercolor paintings will be created the first day using 10 different painting techniques that will leave the student with many paintings to work from. Techniques include transparent layered shapes, tape resists, rubber cement drawing resist, washes, glazing, dropping in of colors, surface treatments using soap bubbles, rubbing alcohol, and grids, etc. One painting will be chosen and cropped to find the most dynamic part. This will be drawn to make templates, then enlarged, and translated with fabrics into a quilt using either Katie’s turned-edge technique or the students preferred technique. When the quilt is done it will look like a watercolor painting. No painting experience is needed.

Combine your love of quilting with the art of painting! Using acrylic paint, students create layers of imagery onto thin canvas by applying fused fabrics and many layers of thin fluid acrylic paint. Choose a color scheme and paint two to three canvases based on that color theme. By cutting the canvases apart you will combine them to create a complex composition. The reconstructed canvas is then layered with batting and backing and stitched. These stitched pieces can then be stretched on a frame for hanging or added to a quilt to create a multi-textured creation.
