In addition to covering contemporary quilt design, free-motion quilting, machine embroidery, thread painting, and fused appliqué, this season we explore soy wax and flour paste resists, screen- and gelatin-printing techniques, unique finishing techniques for small quilts, and introduce a new, fun and informative segment: Save My UFO (UnFinished Objects).
Embellishment topics include designing with zippers, 3-D fabric flowers, and incorporating grommets in patchwork totes. Surface design techniques include stenciling, resist painting, gelatin printing, stamping with soy wax, screen printing fabrics using water-soluble crayons and polymer medium, designing fabrics with thickened dyes, and creative masking and stenciling techniques with oil paint sticks.
Projects include a Winslow Market Tote, 3-D floral appliqués that can be used as quilt embellishments or as brooches, soft-sculpture fabric birds, a colorful journal cover, a 3-D ornament, quilted boots, and fabric-collaged animal portraits.
Plus, Sharon Morton discusses the purpose of guilds and how they can help with quilting, and Pokey explores quilting from the eyes of a 7-year-old girl to get her unique perspective.
There is something for every art quilter and mixed-media artist, beginning through advanced levels.
