Want to quilt on the wild side? Learn how to make an improvised quilt using design triggers or “starter dough” fabric. In this class, you’ll make an art quilt from my vast collection of fused fabric scraps and a handy kit of prefused fabrics. You’ll learn fusing etiquette, fusing tips and tricks, and basic elements of design. The result is a small whimsical wall quilt designed as you go. Without a sketch, a pattern, or even a vague idea of what you’re making in the first place, you’ll discover the joy of making art on the fly!
