On today’s episode of Sewing With Nancy, we continue with part two of How to Sew Art. Start with a photo, choose fabrics, and then follow steps to turn a common digital image into spectacular wall art. Tammie Bowser, a quilt innovator, will show us how to transform ordinary fabric into fine art.
In a recent post, I shared an overview of How to Sew Art part one, including choosing a photo, downloading the software, printing the pattern, creating a fusible web sandwich, and selecting fabrics.
- Either of these two software programs will turn your photo into a pattern. Choose from the Stitch-A-Sketch Art Quilt Software or Quilted Photo Deluxe 2.0 Art Quilt Software.
In How to Sew Art part two, the magic happens!
- Learn techniques for cutting the pattern pieces.
- See how to cut and add the fabric pieces.
- Watch Tammie demonstrate the stitching/quilting process.
In How to Sew Art part two, you’ll also see an inspirational gallery of Tammie’s quilts!
