Shredded Fabric Art Quilts Workshop
In this workshop students will learn to create their own shredded fabric impressionistic art quilt, using a technique originated by Noriko Endo. Fabrics are shredded in class and used to design a scene. Then the design is covered in tulle and top-stitched using free-motion sewing. Lenore will also cover finishing techniques, such as binding the piece and hanging methods. Lenore will also show how she uses fabric paints to enhance these pieces even more where appropriate. No supplies fee required.

Floral Sheers: In this workshop you will use a provided pattern to paint a gorgeous flower with lumineer paint, on parchment paper. That will be fused to organza and then applied to batting for a stunning wall quilt.
Supply List: Black Sharpie “stained” marker is needed. Do not make yourself crazy looking for one, Esterita will have them for sale along with colored “stained” markers that are now her favorites for fabric. Kit Fee: $35.00 covers everything else you will need.
