From Photo to Quilt with Susan Brittingham

Date: TBA, visit the Jacksonville Center for more information about their "On Demand" classes

Description: Have you ever seen a beautiful scene and thought it might make a great quilt? Do you have vacation photos waiting to be made into quilted memories? Would you like to make a portrait of your house? This class will address both design and construction of pictorial quilts. It will teach you how to create a pattern from your favorite photos and to turn them into realistic quilted pictures using applique and thread embellishment techniques.

Susan's specialties include landscapes, flowers and architecture. It is suggested that you work within those subject areas rather than portraits.

This is a two day class. Please visit the Jacksonville Center to find out how to register

Skill level: Intermediate to Advanced. This is a machine class, so you should feel comfortable with your sewing machine. Some free motion sewing experience may be helpful but is not essential.

Items marked with † are available in class.
