This introductory workshop is designed to give participants the skills to thread paint a raw edge fabric collage. Dense or loose free motion machine stitching can greatly enhance a collage with texture and color. This step is done prior to making the quilt sandwich and stitching through all three layers.
I take the “anything goes, there are no rules” approach to thread painting. I will base my teaching to the interests and skill level of the group. Free motion technique, tools and tricks, thread types, shading, double needle technique, fillers, doodling and scribbling will be included. Participants will practice on a stabilized piece of muslin, a printed fabric with a large design, or a fabric collage prepared from the Raw Edge Collage Landscape Quilt Design class.
