Join award-winning art quilter Sarah Ann Smith to learn her process for creating a fused and free-motion stitched fabric collage. Starting with a photo that has good contrast and lighting, Sarah teaches viewers how to determine values, create a pattern, select and enhance fabrics to suit the subject, collage with fused fabrics, and finally select threads and free-motion quilt to thread-color the piece.
In this Workshop, you will learn how to:
- Select a photo for your composition.
- Choose fabrics, prepare them with fusible web, and alter them with textile paint.
- Create the working pattern.
- Fuse the quilt top.
- Use free-motion machine quilting to bring the fused design to life.
Discover Sarah’s strategies for creating an artful machine-stitched fabric collage!
