Cindy will show you ways to divide and conquer the space to create a quilting design that’s uniquely yours. Start out with stencils, deconstructing them to create original patterns. Explore medallion-based designs and then go on to freeform elements – including feathers, fillers, and repeating motifs you can use to highlight your quilt with beautiful areas of sunshine and shadow.
