Workshop: Artful Log Cabins
For nearly 30 years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary art quilts. Katie’s easy, energetic manner has made her a very popular teacher and lecturer. In 2005 she was inducted into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival. In addition to being a prolific author, Katie is now a fabric designer for Free Spirit Fabrics.
The log cabin block is so very versatile, we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition, overlay a grid, this can be an even grid, an uneven grid, curved or random grid, this linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then log cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and then put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value and visual pathways.
