Tap into your artistic side

Confidently create contemporary fabric and quilt designs with Carrie's artistic guidance

Join innovative artist, designer, and quilter Carrie Bloomston for Art Techniques for Quilt Design, a Quilting Arts Workshop™ video that will help all artists find their voice and translate that in their work. Begin by learning how to capture the essence of an idea in cloth by using the simple warm-up techniques, drawing exercises, and basic design principles taught in art school.

Next, channel your art and focus on your inner voice with Carrie's technique for shutting out your mind and focusing on what feels and looks right. Then put these techniques to the test as you learn how to craft a freeform nest pattern, create collages from fabric, and design a quilt based on children's artwork.

Take it from Carrie: "My goal is to help people sew simple, artful stuff. My whole life I have heard people say, 'My aunt was an artist, but I can't even draw a stick figure,' and the like. Phooey, I say. Think of me as your inner-artist enabler!"

Trust your intuition Review by Claudia

After watching Carrie's DVD, I am determined to make more time for ART! Carrie has a passion for creating and invites us into her colorful world. She dispenses her expert instruction, & confidence building techniques with a clear vision of the journey. What I loved most was her declaration that we all have permission to let our inner artist come out and PLAY!

Creativity Enabled! Review by Kristin
Rating

I really enjoyed the class and immediately started working on a stitching project after viewing. I like how encouraging Carrie is throughout and keep thinking about her ideas on inspiration and design processes. Plus, I love that she included instructions for creating two of her famous quilts. This is a fun way to break out of the pattern mold and rip into some nearby fabric to play.

Wow! This is an amazing resource. Carrie's knowledge and ability to communicate make drawing and creating one of a kind fabric art pieces so doable! I enjoyed watching and will watch again. There are some great exercises included. A great "go to" resource for quilt design.
