Vintage Art from the Heart!

Vintage Art Quilt:
Designed by: Susan Tidwell
Vintage Art from the Heart...this describes this wonderful art quilt perfectly! It would make a great tribute piece to one of your beloved family members or a charming piece of art for your home.  In this workshop you will create a wonderful keepsake that will be treasured by your family for years to come!  Each student will create their own unique 13in. x 16in. art quilt, choosing elements from the assortment of fabrics, laces, papers and embellishments provided. You will learn different techniques for ageing fabrics and papers to achieve a time-worn look. You will also learn an image transfer technique using a copy of a special family photograph or vintage image for the focal point of this fabric and paper collage. There will be some sewing in the piece, but students may choose to eliminate this step.  The original photograph will not be used or damaged in this project. You will be using a copy of the photograph.
