Posh, Pet Portraits

This is my new kitty Huey.  I had so much fun making him into a Posh, Pet Portrait, I decided to teach a class on how to do it.  Let me help you turn a photo of your favorite pet into a beguiling art quilt using easy, fused, raw edge applique, and free motion quilting.  These make great gifts for family members too! After learning this technique, you can also make landscapes and other types of art quilts!

How do you translate all those wonderful photos you have into the art quilts you love?  In this fast moving class, I will show you easy ways to make a pattern from your photo, and an art quilt from your pattern.  You don’t need to know how to draw to make beautiful art quilts using this method!  Bring your machine too, because I will show you how to audition your quilting designs, and then we will quilt your little art quilt.  This is a great class for guild workshops.  Students will have a choice of 3 different photos to work from: Seascape, Hibiscus, and City Sunset.

Fused Applique & Paint Workshop: Morning Glory Pattern

Fused applique is fast, fun and very creative. Applying a little textile paint to add depth to your flower or landscape can be addicting. Here’s a class where you learn how to do both!! In this class, I provide two patterns to choose from and we take off from there. We will cover the basics of fusing fabric, choosing fabrics and colors to make your piece shine, and painting for depth and realism with a little bit of fabric paint. Your fused and painted piece will then be ready for you to quilt on your own.

6 hour workshop

Profab, Jacquard or Setacolor fabric paints , 1/4″ and 1/2″ flat angled brushes, and large plastic bag for covering table are recommended. Paint kits can be provided for a $40 fee. I have extra brushes you can use if you prefer not to buy your own.


Finally, the class you’ve been waiting for….calling all quilters, traditional, art quilters, beginners, advanced and everyone in between. We will explore the element of color in designing your quilts by using simple exercises in FABRIC (after all that’s our medium!) First you will learn about value and the importance of it in all your work. We will do some fabric exercises to help you master value. Then you will learn about different color schemes and create 2-3 small abstract fused quilt tops to demonstrate these color schemes. Your confidence in choosing colors for your quilts will be greatly enhanced. Don’t be intimidated by all those colors-take your quilts from boring to gorgeous!
