Anne Shaw, "Line, Shape and Design"
Thursday, June 4, 2015
Ann will be presenting her approach to designing quilts and how the differing choices in the design process influence the look of a quilt. Ann’s website features this endorsement from Ruth McDowell: “Ann Shaw has been a student of mine for many years in my Designing From Nature 5-day classes. It’s been exciting to watch her quilting develop over the years. Ann’s pieced quilts explore many kinds of subjects, using varied color selections and fabric collections, and different styles of borders.” Her work spans the traditional to abstractions of our everyday world.
