    Movin' On: The Magic of Movement in Quilts
    Why should we worry about creating movement in our compositions? Interest.
    While color, pattern and workmanship create beauty, movement creates interest. It’s a guaranteed “wow factor” and adds a certain sophistication. We can create it using appliqué, adjusting a composition, incorporating asymmetrical shapes, and unique border treatments.
    In writing patterns for over 20 years, I’ve seen how movement in a composition absolutely draws people in.
    I’ll show you lots of unique ways to create it, often with a bit of humor that seems to just delight.
