I participated in a great 1-day design workshop taught by Heather Jones, http://www.heatherjonesstudio.com/, last month! As a member of the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild, I can take advantage of wonderful workshops and speakers throughout the year. Heather braved a snowy weekend in Ann Arbor (January 18-20) to visit Washtenaw Community College. I took her class on designing a quilt using a photograph as inspiration–we drew our interpretations of the simplified, distilled image for our quilt designs. It was most inspiring! and I recommend Heather as a teacher!!
