Renowned quilt artist Ellen Lindner will be presenting a lecture Adventures in
Color at our November 7 meeting. Please go to her website :Www.Adventurequilter.com
Her work is unique and gorgeous. She will also be offering a 3-hour workshop that afternoon
called “Instant Art Quilt”. Here is her description of this class from her website:
“Have you ever bought a fabric that was so gorgeous you were hesitant to cut it up? Now, you can use the beauty of that fabric to QUICKLY and easily make a fantastic art quilt! Following Ellen’s instructions, you’ll tear your fabric, then arrange those pieces onto a base fabric, using a placement plan. Your results are guaranteed to be awesome. Not only that, but this process is so fast, that within just a few hours, you’re likely to have it quilted – and possibly even finished! You’ll be amazed at your quick and beautiful results!”
Sign up for her class, which will only be 15 students, will begin in early September. Email sign up will be available for members still out of town. More details are in the September newsletter. Class cost is $40. Supply list will be available upon sign up and payment. However, one item on her supply list is a ½ yd piece of “drop dead gorgeous” hand dyed fabric. Sources recommended by Ellen are in the newsletter and website. Also, www.equilter.com has a large selection. Enter hand-dyed in their search feature.
For Instant Art Quilt class you’ll need ½ yard of drop dead gorgeous hand dyed fabric. It must have significant light and dark areas, with 2 or more colors. (It works best if the print/scale of the fabric is large, rather than having an allover “wallpaper” look. Also, at least ¼ of the fabric should be light.)
