This is the first post in my new blog series called "What's Under the Needle". Basically, I am going to share with you what I have been working on during the week since my previous post. At times I will be giving away free patterns or tutorials, presenting new projects and offering challenges among other things. I hope it will be as much fun for you as it will be for me, with some learning experiences along the way! So let's get started with this week....
Quiltmakers who are moving forward with their work often study art - there is so much to be learned. Think of all the parallels between painting and quilts.
Three unsuspecting friends got together with Elizabeth to learn how to make a small art quilt - in six hours! The class with multiple short videos shows how you can make a quilt without stressing out, without agony, without buying anything extra. It also covers basic planning and studio practice ideas that you'll be able to use over and over in other pieces e.g. quick design methods, easy ways to make good color choices, simplifying cutting and constructing, a simple facing method that you'll love to use over and over.
