Highlights of Ep. 2505 - Art Quilts—Fusible Collage Workshop, Part 2

I fondly remember making collages in art classes. Newspaper clippings, ribbons, found objects and photographs glued to paper. No two designs were alike and the rules were, well there weren’t any rules. Swap out the collected objects to fabric, bright fabric, and exchange the glue for fusible web and now create an art quilt.

Two leading art quilters, Frieda Anderson and Laura Wasilowski—aka Fusing Chicks—inspire us how to create small or large fusible collage art quilts. In this second episode of Art Quilts—Fusible Collage Workshop, Frieda begins by showing us how to add fusible borders. Then Laura takes an improvisational approach as she details a rather unconventional binding.

You’ll enjoy learning Laura and Frieda’s unique art quilt techniques and tips. Such as:

  1. Border/Framing
  2. Adding a Wrapped Binding to a Quilt
  3. Decorative Stitch Accents
  4. Machine Quilting a Quilt with a Wrapped Binding

Then, practice yourself, using the Art Quilts—Fusible Collage Workbook. The 3-ring binder includes 14 easy-to-learn lessons. You’ll be guided through step-by-step instructions on how to create small art quilts using the self-proclaimed Fusing Chicks techniques.

 Nancy’s Corner Interview

One of the great privileges of the Nancy’s Corner segment is that I’m able to feature volunteer and charity sewing and quilting organizations. From emails and letters, you’ve told me that because of these features you’ve volunteered your time and talents to help the featured organizations. I’d like to introduce you to another grassroots charity, whose mission is to raise awareness and fund research for Alzheimer’s. My guest was Beth Hartford, from the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative.
