Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts

with Laura Wasilowski
Step away from your sewing machine and cut straight (or wonky) to the fun of creating fused art quilts with hand-stitched embellishments. Laura Wasilowski will show you how!

Laura shares whimsical designs for three small, single-block quilts that you can create along with her.  You'll add fusible web to your fabrics and learn how to protect your tools and work surfaces. Cutting out free-form appliqué shapes and composing your artwork are a breeze - your creativity and improvisation are encouraged!  Then it's time to add details and texture with a wealth of hand-embroidery stitches, from lazy daisies to French knots. Laura will show how to make more than a dozen stitches, and help you finish your quilt with batting, a colorful border and options for hanging. Laura's e-book Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts is included free!

"I loved this Craftsy class and Laura is a great instructor. ... She explains and demonstrates all the steps very clearly and in a fun way. I watched all the lessons just sitting here mesmerized. Now I will go back and watch them again and actually make a project! I wake up at night planning all the various projects I want to make. I'm not getting much sleep but I'm enjoying it!"
