Heidi Proffetty is a multiple-award-winning quiltmaker for her mosaic quilts, which earned her a first-place award at AQS QuiltWeek in Paducah. Learn her mosaic technique while you create a beautiful mini art quilt. Heidi will discuss each step she takes to create a mosaic quilt from a photograph, including how to draw shapes, how to recognize values in photos and translate them to the correct colors, and how to choose just the right fabrics for your quilt. As you learn, you’ll create a lovely mini quilt from a precut mosaic quilt kit. Once you’ve finished your design, layer the quilt and do some simple free-motion quilting to add depth and dimension to your piece. You’ll love creating this mini quilt and you’ll leave inspired to try your own mosaic quilts at home!
Registration for this class includes show admission for Friday.
