Beyond Log Cabin

with Judith Trager
Art Quilt Backgrounds
Cut loose, cut wonky and create a work of art with Judith Trager.

Art doesn’t have to be intimidating. In fact, when you use Judith's unique piecing and innovative appliqué techniques, your first art quilt will feel liberating! A lifelong quilter, Judith pays homage to tradition, but ventures far beyond classic quilting methods to create layers of silk screened images, embellishments and stitching. Power through your stash of scraps by following her fun and creative process of assembling blocks faster. You'll add nature-inspired elements to your quilt top, as she shows you how to easily incorporate leaf and landscape motifs. Break free from ruler tyranny and get inspired!

"This was truly like sitting in the classroom with Judith. My favorite Craftsy online course so far. Instructions were clear and when I wanted to ask something extra the platform allowed Judith to reply to my question directly. A fun topic which was presented in great detail but in a friendly down to earth way."
