Color Me Quilts- Art Applique for Mother's Day

I am offering a special online Color Me Quilt class for Mother's Day!! Join me as I teach you my many techniques for applying colored pencils to fabric to create a multitude of effects and create an applique look. You will be able to color along with me and get live instruction and help.  You will learn how about faux marbling, watercolor effects, applying texture and so much more. Learn how you can create whimsy or more realism once you know these techniques and the best part is that they are colorfast and permanent. I will also show you how you can incorporate this technique into your regular applique quilts or art quilts. I showed this technique on Quilting Arts TV and in their magazine and have taught this class in person across the US.

What is so fun is that you don't need sewing machines and no art experience needed for this class, I will show you how!! Most of my students have never done any artwork and have amazing results. This is a great opportunity to learn a new technique that you can use in many different ways for both art quilts and in traditional quilts. The class is scheduled for 3 hours and may run a little over if there are lots of questions.

What you will receive with this class-

  1. Stitch file for the 8"x8" block (if you want to stitch out your own block)
  2. 3 hour Zoom class packed with demos and instructions for success
  3. Information on how to create multiple effects you can use on many fabric projects.
  4. How to make sure it is permanent 
  5. Hands on instruction and live demo so you can ask all the questions you want
  6. Access to the recorded class or other video demo
  7. Option to purchase one of two kits (optional)

  9. Your choice of one of two choices for you to color, Sunflowers or Wild Roses
