Textile Architecture

Create your own version of my wonky house quilt! Work with my pattern or customize it and make it a winter scene, make the sun, a moon and it’s night scene, turn the garage into a dog house or add a clothesline strung from the tree to the house with socks hung to dry. Work with solids, prints, batiks - whatever you like, the choice is  yours!

I’ll take you through the entire art quilt making process from start to finish and you’ll learn my cookie cutter outline method for getting those black outlines around odd shaped images. You’ll also learn my methods for working with Mistyfuse fusible web, my quilt as you go method and my 4 strip fused binding technique.  And as a bonus for those of you who might want to dye your own fabric I'm including video lessons on my own easy fabric dyeing method!

Each lesson in this workshop includes a step by step video and may also include companion downloadable PDF files
