QU 2019 – Saturday and Sunday July 27 & 28 – Stitched Photo Landscapes – Michelle Dobrin
Transform landscape photos into beautiful and textured quilted fiber art. Attendees submit their own photo (digitally, over email) and Michelle will enhance and print it onto fabric. Three additional printed photos will be provided, to practice on day 1. On day 2, attendees will free-motion quilt and sew their own photo into a small (8″x10″) quilt, and finish it by wrapping around canvas stretcher bars so that it is ready to hang on the wall. Note: if there is enough interest, an extra half-hour can be added to the end of this class with a demonstration on how to digitally enhance photo.
