Stitched Mosaics - Basic Technique

Learn how to make a pictorial quilt, by focusing on one small square at a time. If you have ever seen Timna's animal quilts and wondered, "How did she do that?", this workshop will give you the basic technical skills to create your own Stitched Mosaics quilt. Through videos, text, and photos Timna demonstrates her process using the flower above.

This workshop is best for intermediate or confident beginner quilters.

Kits are not required, but if you would like to purchase one you can at this link. They can be shipped within the U.S.

What You Will Learn

  • Choosing a photo to work from
  • Breaking down a project into manageable bite-sized pieces
  • Using freezer paper to create custom templates
  • Basic machine applique
  • Your instructions are so clear and every time I formulate a question in my head, I find it answered in that video or the next one. Having friends doing it concurrently means I'm actually going to finish my project because I'm planning a virtual show & tell. Thanks so much for creating the content. And thanks to your daughter as videographer.
