When you mix quilting with art you get Thread Art. This is a great class for those who what to explore an innovative way to make beautiful art quilts but have little or no experience with quilting. The techniques the students will learn can be used to produce an art quilt of anything (person, place, or thing). Students will learn how to design and stitch out a whole cloth art quilt using thread and colored pencils as the medium. Creating their own landscape, portrait, or still-life art quilt seems intimidating to most. Lola has taken the fear out of the process using her seven step approach. The techniques learned can be easily transferred to make a purse, or sweatshirt. Students will leave with a completed 11 x 17 thread art quilt. Optional Kit is available. Kit includes all the fabric, batting, pre-wound bobbin for most machines, instructor’s notes and a 90/14 topstitch needle.
