Designing from Photos

Dye Workshop for Groups and Conferences

3–5 Days


Ann will guide participants in approaches to using their own photographs to create a unique design for quilt blocks. Ann will demonstrate step-by-step and show examples of many of the possible variations with raw-edge machine appliqué. Students will sew the block in as many different ways as possible using a series of increasingly complex appliqué techniques. The resulting designs may or may not resemble or represent the original photograph, but will most likely be the beginning of a new quilt. The five-day class will start a larger project for quilting.
