Realistic Fabric Portraits -September 9, 2016
Realistic Fabric Portraits
How many times have you heard an admirer of an art quilt (perhaps yourself) say, “That is so beautiful, I wish I could do that”, or exclaim, “Oh, I can never do that, I can’t even draw a straight line.” Geared mainly for those quilters who cannot draw, Marilyn will guide you step-by-step through the techniques that enable you to produce realistic fabric portraits of loved ones. In this class, you will learn how to use the computer to adjust photos, appliqué by fusion, deal with the features on a face and use thread painting for the finishing touches. Good basic sewing skills are necessary.

Thanks for your interest. I’d love to find you in class then.
Wanted information on the next class for portraits. I live in Oregon and Washington. Have admired your work for a very long time.
Thank you so much.
Your class times are for the year 2016. Do you have anything for current time?
Are you offering any classes going into the year 2018? Portraits for fabric lovers: mastering the technique of realism.
Thank you ,. Barb
Thank you for your interest. I am not holding the Portrait class until 2018. I do not yet know the schedule for the upcoming year. Perhaps Ruth Blanchet (the dean of The Academy of Quilting) has a schedule ready to release. She can be reached at: email@example.com
Hope to find you in a future class.
Hi! Your artwork is amazing!!! What are the dates and location for 2018 portrait quilt classes? Thanks!
