From Collage to Quilt with Sarah Hibbert
Join Sarah for a day where you can learn how to create a modern collage and turn it into a quilt. Learning this process will lead to endless possibilities for your creative fun.
All your pieces will be stitched together. No applique in this day.
Cutting & Sticking.
Transferring design to paper grid.
Constructing templates, if needed.
Piecing quilt top.
When creating a paper collage, I do not necessarily see the resulting quilt in my mind. That comes when I pull away and stand back from the design. The excitement then starts to happen when I think about what fabric to use, do I go with the colours that are featured or do I resort to my overflowing fabric stash and create another colour scheme altogether?
You can use this design process as a full quilt idea or a series of smaller pieces to interlock for an overall design. Use the paper cut outs as your colour palette and just have fun!
There is a additional £2.00 charge to Sarah for the grid she supplies for you to keep. That way you can continue creating wonderful modern quilts.
Fabrics – chose fabrics you can use easily including cutting and sewing curves.
Inspiration – magazines, papers, colour charts. pictures.
Threads and sewing machine tools.
