My friend, Laura Wasilowski, was kind enough to review my book on her website, so I would like to tell you about her brand new online Craftsy class ready for you to view now. It’s called Sketch It, Fuse It, Quilt It!
In the class she shows you how to make a fused art quilt from start to finish. And it all starts with a simple sketch. You’ll learn about drawing a design and how to enlarge that sketch into a pattern of your own. (Or, you can use the pattern provided for the landscape you see above.)
Then she shows you the possibilities of fun, fusible collages to make the fields, grass, water, and trees. You’ll learn about collages for patterning, bias fusing, weaving, strip fusing, and tiling for the leaves in the foreground.
Once your quilt top is complete, Laura, demonstrates a variety of free-motion stitch pattern that work best on pictorial art quilts. Learn the famous MEMEME stitch, sketching stitches, the wavy stitch, and snails on fire for the sky and border.
