Musing & Fusing: Small Art Quilts
Here's a fast, fun, and easy to loosen up and express your creativity! You'll learn about several different ways to compose a small work of fabric art—either an abstract or a folk-art pictorial. Fusible web and freehand cutting allow for spontaneity, improvisation, and delightful surprises in technique and results. Felt provides a cushiony background, filler, backing, and border.
No sewing or machine sewing is necessary, but quilters may wish to bring their machines and add quilting stitches to their compositions.
This workshop can be a half-day quickie or a full day immersion.
