Here I want to give a brief overview and include photos of the projects that will be in my classes this fall 2018 at IQF Houston. For each class I will have 2 choices of projects and kits available for both. I will have a limited number of kits, so if you are signed up for my class and want a specific one send me an email.
These are the samples for the 2 patterns with kits, Bulldog and Boston Terrier, I will have for my Dazzling Dogs class at IQF Houston on Nov 8 2018. The photo and description are a little misleading. For the class students will get to choose one of these two kits. I am teaching my raw edge fabric collage technique using these patterns with unrealistic colors. Its more fun that way. The second half of the class I will teach how to create your own patterns for a pet portrait quilt using a photo of your pet. I will show samples of portraits made using realistic colors. I hope this clears things up as the photo of the bassett hound is for the second half of the class.
My 6 hr class on Nov 7th is called Leaping Lizards. I will have a choice of these 2 patterns; a basilisk or the red-eyed tree frog.During class students will learn my raw edge fabric collage technique that does not use pattern pieces or fusible but is more a trace and cut technique and glue to hold the pieces together. Its a simple method with few rules. The second half of the class will be instructions on how to make your own patterns from photographs
Above are the two patterns I will have available for my Sunlit Sunflower class. This is a 3 hr class so the pace will be pretty quick. Students will learn my fabric collage technique and other tips about using color in these quilts. My kit includes plenty of colored fabrics, the pattern, the interfacing and background fabric to finish your piece.
Finally my last class is Rocking Roosters and again I have a choice of two similar patterns. One is a mainly black and white rooster and the other has some black and white but has a more colorful body. These are fun quilts to make as you can add a colorful pieced background. In the class though in 3 hours students will just be working on completing the rooster.
Thanks for looking up my class descriptions. I will also be at the Friday morning sampler where you can watch me as I work on one of my pet portraits.
