Class Overview

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.
