Art Quilting Workshops for 2011
Last year I led a monthly art quilting workshop. Every month we learned a new technique with the opportunity to complete one project. This year we are beginning with projects from one book "Quilted Symphony" by Gloria Loughman. It will take 4 to 5 months to work through the book. Completion of this book will give all an opportunity to turn an abstract design into a quilt. I will record my progress on my blog so follow along and see where it might take you.
Using a tear-away stabilizer, trace the drawn design, numbering segments in order of placement.
Draw segments onto freezer paper, cut out, and press onto right side of fabric. Cut around shape approx. 1/4" away from freezer paper shape. Layer each shape with tear-away stabilizer and stay-stitch 1/8" away from paper shape. Remove freezer paper.
Segments are now ready to decorate with applique.
