Amazing Abstracts
Create an abstract quilt that has amazing movement and drama, using the techniques pioneered by Ursula Kern.

  • Go from inspiration to a simple sketch, then have fun “coloring” your sketch with bits of fabric to create a mock-up of your design – see before you sew!
  • The design is gridded and blocks are foundation pieced using an easy sew-and-flip method with room for creativity and improvisation.

Lots of discussion of design principles and how to use color and value to create the drama and desired effects.
