Turn Photos Into Quilts With Appliqué

Name: Turn Photos Into Quilts With Appliqué
Date: August 4, 2014 - August 8, 2014
Event Description:

This retreat is for quilters at an intermediate level, who have a basic understanding of appliqué techniques. 

David creates highly detailed images for his award winning quilts by using simple shapes, and by letting the fabric create texture to achieve a ‘painted’ effect.

During this workshop, David will show you how to adapt a photograph into a wall quilt, using hand-appliqué and piecing techniques. A simple subject with a nice detail works best for his method. A great deal of time is spent on tracing and pattern drawing, along with fabric selection - which is key to his process. He will show you how to get beautiful details from simple shapes by letting the fabric do all the hard work.

David will also show you his appliqué technique for invisible stitching, and will finish up with quilting and binding options. Please contact David at in advance of the class to discuss your image choice!
