    Black and white fabric is prevalent in most quilt shops and is a very creative option to thread paint some amazing designs. Thread painting on commercial fabric is as easy as 1.2.3. In this workshop you will learn how to blend thread to make the finished flower look realistic. With the design printed, it is easy to begin your thread painting adventure. Once you have taken this class, you will never look at black and white fabric the same.  A required kit fee of $10 contains items that promote your success.

    When you mix quilting with art you get Thread Art. This is a great class for those who want to explore an innovative way to make beautiful art quilts but have little or no experience with quilting.  The techniques the students will learn can be used to produce an art quilt of anything (person, place, or thing). Students will learn how to design and stitch out a whole cloth art quilt using thread and colored pencils as the medium.  Creating their own landscape, portrait, or still life art quilt seems intimidating to most.  Lola has taken the fear out of the process using her seven step approach.  The techniques learned can be easily transferred to make a purse, or sweatshirt.  Students will leave with a completed 11 x 17 thread art quilt. Optional Kit is available.  Kit includes all the fabric, batting, pre-wound bobbin for most machines, instructor’s notes and a 90/14 topstitching needle

    Do you ever get tired of templates? Or even precise planning with quick techniques? This class will show you how to do "ad lib" piecing so that can scatter pieces over the surface and piece them into a background where you want them to be so they seem to float. Make a practice sample or a small wall quilt in the one day class or a vest to finish at home.

    The log cabin block is so very versatile, we will use that as the basis for creating linear abstract art quilts. Start with a painting or photograph, crop that to a strong personal composition, overlay a grid, this can be an even grid, an uneven grid, curved or random grid, this linear drawing is laid over the inspiration photo or painting to become the map. Then log cabins made up of the colors found in each unit of the grid will be constructed and then put together to make the quilt. Emphasis on composition, variety, color, value and visual pathways.

    Registration opens October 6th, 2017

    The fee for this two-day class is $80 for guild members.Click here for the Supply List.
