Join artist Jane LaFazio to learn her technique for creating a fabulous unique art quilt from cloth scraps. Jane guides viewers step-by-step through her spontaneous and creative process to make a one-of-a-kind artwork. The approach is ideal for beginner and intermediate quilters, and it’s a perfect introduction to art quilting for more traditional quilters. Techniques covered in the Workshop include: machine stitching (it’s a great opportunity to try out the embroidery stitches on your sewing machine); fusing; composition; layered appliqué; hand embroidery; and embellishment. The process is translatable to larger work, collaborative projects, and even to mixed media with paper. Jane shares ideas for displaying and finishing these pieces in the final chapter of the video. Prepare to learn a fresh, creative approach…you just can’t go wrong!

I chose well and would recommend! Review by Margaret

I really enjoyed watching this video. No sooner seen than off into the workroom to try it out for myself. Chose to do it with hand decorated papers, and loved the look and feel onto felt background. I'll machine and hand stitch finish when I get a moment. Though Jane makes it look easy when she cuts the pieces, my overall circle ended up looking a little less round than hers, so I shall cut the arcs with a bit more care next time.

Excellent. Review by Amy

Great video...very thorough in directions, tips and tricks that let you have more fun doing the quilt than trying to figure it out. I watched it and got very excited about doing this different technique. Now I just have to find the time!
