Free-Form Symmetry

Free-Form Symmetry Class Ideas*

Suddenly Seymour - Close-UpDESCRIPTION:  Experience the freedom, elegance, beauty, and simplicity of Free-Form Symmetry, a brand new concept that lends itself to teaching students that they can actually design without knowing how to “draw.  The quilt “Suddenly Seymour” is the premise for this class; however, each student’s final product will be completely different from anyone else’s. I sincerely believe that this is a time-efficient, ideal and exciting new technique – nothing complicated or “mind-bending.” It is simple enough that anyone can do it with beautiful, pleasing, self-gratifying results. I will teach the students to create their own “serendipitous” designs without even trying. I will take the “fear factor” out of designing! I want each student to look forward to their ownoriginal finished piece, to be relaxed, stress-free and able to enjoy their classes. The best part ? Everyone will go home a WINNER and they’re like potato chips – “you can’t make just one !”

All classes can be tailored from 1-2 days depending on how far along in the process you would like to go.

BELOW ARE ARE JUST A FEW THINGS STUDENTS SAID ABOUT MY FREE-FORM SYMMETRY CLASS ON THE CRUISE SHIP!

“Leave your pre-conceived notions at the door!” This is not your mother’s applique. Patti’s technique pushes the limits of your comfort zone and helps you discover your artistic spark.” Sandy Rosenthal

“It was great fun learning your symmetry technique. Your class gave a reason to pause and look at symmetry from a different viewpoint. As you know, I am non-symmetrical at heart, but you were able to rein me in, and in the end, I ended up with a very special project. Thank you for a great class. We had loads of fun!” Joyce Kramp

“You made our cruise class so much fun! I loved learning your technique, and I’ll always treasure the memories of our trip!” Peggy Carter

“Just a few words about the wonderful experience I had with you on the cruise. The project was so much fun and different. Once starting your technique, it made me look at things so differently. I am noticing many things now that I didn’t before.. the possibility of designs! Thank you so much for sharing with me and the others on the cruise. I have both projects finished and am using them in my living room. It is a happy reminder of the wonderful time we had on the cruise.” Joyce Camigliano
