About the Class:
Come experience the beautiful ocean through the art quilt! We will begin with three fabrics sewn together to represent Sky, Water, Sand. Then, we’ll slightly scrunch for texture and lightly free-motion quilt it. No right or wrong here folks. Once that is accomplished, the real fun begins, Embellishment! Applying fibers, cheesecloth, beads, shells, appliqued stones and/or driftwood, your composition will come to life!
Light machine sewing, hand work, alternative surface design techniques that spark the creative spirit.
