Fabric Collage by Susan Brooks

A fabric collage focuses on a central theme–such as people, animals, or objects. I like to think of a theme and make it into an abstract picture; for example, the Chinese cranes in the picture look like a cliff to the side of a pool with the birds flying through a stormy sky.  Another idea is African women coming out of yellow lilies with a night sky, waterfall, and pond. A distinct fabric works best. You do not want so much overlapping that you don’t have a full picture. The quilt really designs itself.

Member Cost: $35

Nonmember Cost: $45

Landscape Quilts by Jackie Vujcich

Want to try pictorial quilting but don’t know where or how to start? Join me for a half day of fun to learn fusible raw-edge applique and what thought process that goes into determining landscape design composition. We are going to fly by the seat of our pants; but for those not ready to go full improv, the pattern is there for a more structured class. Project is fat-quarter sized and very do-able.

Note: Time is from 10AM-2 PM

Fee: $25 plus required Pattern: $4, Optional kit: $20 (includes pattern)
