TEXTURED GARDEN, Cecile Whatman

Style: Hands-on

Duration: 6hrs

Level: All

Create a floral fantasy art quilt using a range of textured fabrics for dimension, depth and movement. Start by building a fabulous painted background using inks and fabric paints. While that is drying, create shimmer and depth with painted Mistyfuse, foils and light weight Lutradur. Finally build a third layer of appliquéd flowers and leaves using tyvek, silk velvet, wool and cotton fabric. Flowers will be cut on a Sizzex machine. Stitching and quilting will be completed at home.
