We combine artist and quilter with amazing results. Appearing first is Ana Buzzalino. She starts out with simple landscapes created with stitch and paint. You’ll learn how to cut and sew shallow curves without marking or pinning and then move on to the design, quilting and finally, painting of your landscape. Next is Cheryl Sleboda and simple cartooning for quilters. This is a demonstration on how to draw a cartoon face – even if you have no drawing skills, and then how to turn the fusible pieces into a quilt. We close with Judy Coates Perez and how to paint gradations on fabric with textile paints.
