Have you ever walked through a clothing store and seen an outfit that immediately made you think of someone? The unique combination of color and pattern might make you say to yourself, “Oh, wow! That is so Kathy!”…or whoever’s name it happens to be.
Whether it’s in the way we dress, how we decorate our homes, or even the way we quilt, we all have our own unique style. This style is a reflection of who we are, how we want to be known, and what we want to become.
There are opportunities all around us to adopt other people’s styles as our own. In fact, for most of us, we more often than not plug into what other people create instead of developing a truly unique and distinctive style.
The fabulous thing about art, which includes quilting, is that the possibilities of creation are ENDLESS!!! With some basic understanding of the various elements and techniques, you have within you the ability to design things that literally no one else can!
Imagine someone looking at a quilt that you have created and having the privilege of saying, “I designed this!” This gives you an amazing feeling…way more than “I followed someone’s pattern.”
Designing your own beautiful quilts is easier than you might think. In my new instructional DVD “Building Blocks for Quilts – Volume 1”, I teach you some basic techniques and then set you free to explore and create something that is uniquely you. This video is not just about following a pattern (although you can keep it that simple if you want). For details about this exciting tool, click here. http://equiltblock.com/
