Making Traditional Modern

Page Content: 

In this webinar, we'll discuss how to update traditional patterns by using modern ideas to create dynamic designs. We will be visually exploring how to design a modern quilt beginning with traditional favorites, such as log cabins and half square triangle designs, and adding in modern elements to demonstrate how to completely change and update the look and feel of a quilt.
