Event Details

Take a Smile

Translate your favorite quotation, first name, family name or milestone into a quilt.  Create original designs with letters, words, your sense of humor, give free advice, or convey emotion.  Meena Schaldenbrand will show you how to use text as background, create cut outs, use positive/negative images and do many more exercises.  Brainstorm and create first on paper and then on fabric using a variety of great resources.  Create your own quilts or personalize them for gifts.

Some examples of Meena’s quilts with text are included here. Students can use these ideas or create their own.
