Charlie is done with thread painting on fabric. For this 2 day workshop, students choose a photograph (not larger than 5" x 7" preferably), printed out onto a commercially available ink jet fabric, and cover with free motion embroidery by machine. Sandra will bring a collection of machine embroidery thread to help fill in color gaps for student use. Learn how to make very realistic images suitable for a quilted wall hanging or framing. Thread paint your own pet if desired!
For a single day workshop, students will work on a small image (about 4" x 6"), with fewer thread color changes.
Fused Raw Edge Art Quilts from photographs
Students learn the basics of making raw edge quilts from photographs. Students can choose to work from a prepared pattern, see the Waterlily image, or bring in their own enlargements to work from instead. This can be a one or two day workshop.
