Art Quilting Class!



Art Quilting Class!

Greetings Art Gang,

Our Collage Class has been a fabulous success and we will hold one more session this Saturday, August 12 10:00-3:00.

Students from the previous Collage classes are welcome to join the Encore class at a reduced class fee! Please be sure that you have signed up at Quilters Haven. Remember, you don’t have to make the Dress Form, you can do any of the Lara Heine patterns.

We will be working through the lunch hour, so please bring a lunch or plan to get lunch when you need a break!

Here are a few things you can do before you get to class!

Class Prep:

  • Choose your pattern.
  • Foundation fabric (Pattern-ease or Voile).
  •  Fusible:  Steam a Seam 2 or Applique Fuse & Fix.
  • Collage Fabric: Quilters Haven has pulled some fabrics that work well for collage. You will need small amounts (fat eights or scraps) of LOTS  of different fabrics. Go through your stash and search for fabrics that will work. You do not need perfectly complete flowers or motifs. I used lots of partial flowers for the edges. We will share and help each other with fabric in class, so if you have a fabric that works well, bring a little extra!
  • Iron fusible onto your fabric. Do not pull off remaining backing paper!
  • If you are an “eager beaver” you can cut some flowers in advance of class. Be sure to cut small, medium and large flowers and groups of flowers (We will be doing a lot of cutting and arranging in class.) Please save your larger scraps from cutting out motifs because they may be useful in class. Please don’t cut all of your fabrics before class! I have many helpful hints that will help you use different kinds of fabric to achieve “collage happiness”!

Bring to Class:

  • Sharp scissors, 2 sizes, small and medium.
  • Pencil (for marking foundation fabric).
  • Small container or large plastic bag to hold your cut out shapes. (I used a thin plastic box designed for scrapbook paper.)
  • Pattern and supplies.
  • Extra fabric for sharing.
  • A smile... we are going to have fun!

 

If you have any questions, please email me and I will be happy to help! Be sure you name is on the list at Quilters Haven!

Happy Creating!
