Learning objectives:

To learn how to draw your own Drunkard’s Path designs.

Over the course of three weeks (three sessions) we will break down how to use a library of Drunkard’s Path templates and a basic drawing program called TouchDraw to get you started with creating your own designs.

Session 1 – I will show you the basics of creating with TouchDraw, how to use the templates provided, move and multiply the shapes and add colour. After the first session you will be able to play with the program and the templates and draw your own designs (yes, you’ll get homework). Everyone will be able to submit one design that will be turned into a quilt design in the following session. We will be working in a small group of only ten people to ensure everyone’s design will be converted from just an idea into a quilt design.

Session 2– Your chosen design will be looked at and we will figure out the  best way to approach the quilt construction. How to add background pieces and borders and how to join the separate sections together.

Session 3 – I will show you how I create cutting instructions and calculate fabric allowances for my quilts. I will use a few of your designs as examples in this session. Please note, this is not a pattern-writing workshop. I am wanting to share the way I come up with and draw new designs and plan how to best turn my idea into a quilt.

TouchDraw is now available for Windows as well as Mac and iPad but your screen will look slightly different to mine. F
