Artful Eye Quilt – July

Register Online

Class focuses on color and visual texture with a purpose. You will create a design using leftover fabric scraps from projects, This class is a collage that’s stitch together into a composition on Pellon which keeps it stiff. My work gets framed. This class is finding out your focus and creating a fabric picture of that focus idea. Color is really important in this class, and you will find that every piece of fabric is viewed & judged by standing back and squinting, or using binoculars backwards to see what the design really looks like visually. We share fabric in this class.
