August 15, 2019 –  10 am – 2 pm – Photo to Art Quilting  – Barbara Rogers

You will need a color photo printed on 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper.  If your photo is small, find a scanner/printer and enlarge it to fit the full page.  It can be any photo, hopefully not too complicated, such as a flower, a bird, your house, your cat, or even a page from a magazine or catalog that you like.
  • A fine point sharpie, a pencil, chalk, or frixon marker to mark your fabric
  • Freezer paper
  • Scraps of fabric, batiks, solid or nearly solid of colors in your photo.  (We can share.)
  • A piece of batting and a piece of  background appox. 12×14 inches.  We are making a small piece, so you don’t need much.
  • A bobbin filled with clear mono-filament thread
  • Several thread spools in colors to match your photo
  • Your sewing machine with a free motion foot, usual sewing supplies.   You will need small sharp scissors. A cutting mat and rotary cutter will not be needed.
  • A glue stick or glue basting, or liquid fuse (my preference)
  • Iron, pressing sheet, small ironing pad. (We can share this, too).
