Erin Schlosser of Schlosser Designs gave a great presentation on using our quilt skills to apply them to non-quilt sewing concepts. She showed us her design process and tools. She talked about working with fabric companies and designers, events for Janome and we *might* have got a super sneak peek at a line of fabric releasing in Houston. All of her patterns were for sale and if you missed the presentation, check out her patterns and website here: http://www.schlosserdesigns.com/
The laminated graph paper and tracing paper makes her design process smooth and variable as she can add design details easily to test which styles/shapes she wants in her next amazing project.
Erin had plenty of pattern samples and was able to share with us that her patterns are written from a Sewing Instructor's point-of-view. She adds tips and designer notes to every pattern. On her newer patterns, she even includes QR codes which link to websites that have full photographs of the step-by-step construction. Visit her pattern shop HERE.
Erin's designs go much further past her own pattern collection. She designs for patterns for Windham Fabrics. The pattern above is a free download on their website. Look for big things coming soon from Schlosser Designs, including a chapter or two in an upcoming book.
