Painting With Fabric


Create a landscape quilt.  Use raw-edged appliqué techniques and your imagination to create this one-of-a-kind piece of art.  We will be choosing fabrics that resemble nature’s colors.   I will be teaching you raw-edged appliqué, and free-motion to create movement in this piece.
