Graphic Design & Triangles with Rebecca Bryan

Rebecca Bryan, of Bryan House Quilts, visited our guild in September to deliver a lecture on graphic design in quilts and teach a class on Design Improv with Triangles.

Rebecca is well known to MQG audiences for her beautiful and graphically striking quilts as well as her two books, Modern Rainbow and Modern Triangle Quilts.

At her lecture and trunk show, A Quilter’s Guide to Graphic Design: Modern Triangle Trunk Show & Lecture, Rebecca walked us through some basic graphic design concepts and vocabulary. She showed many of her quilts from Modern Triangle Quilts and explained the graphic design elements within them, from inspiration to design and execution.

Rebecca’s workshop, Design Improv with Triangles, we took what we had learned in the lecture and applied it to designing our own triangle blocks. Rebecca further discussed the graphic elements of line, texture, scale, and framing and showed us how to experiment with them in this simple shape.

Many thanks to Rebecca for a wonderful lecture and workshop. Rebecca can be reached at
