*This workshop is sold out. You may register to be added to the wait list.

Learn basic portrait composition, photo editing, and fabric selection for a portrait quilt from award-winning quilter Lea McComas.

This workshop will include instruction on how to create a pattern and use a fused, raw-edge applique technique to produce an amazing life-like portrait quilt top approximately 14 x 18 in.

Participants will send Lea 2-3 digital photos at least 2 weeks prior to the workshop so that she can prepare a printout for their use.

Class kit includes full size photo printout, notes for photo editing. A kit fee of $5 will be paid to the teacher at the time of the workshop.

Additional tools and materials will be available for purchase at the workshop.


Lea is a fiber artist from Golden, CO. Lea's magnificent piece called "The Long Goodbye" demonstrates how she captures emotions, feelings and human beauty in her portrait work. This touching piece won the Masters Award for Thread Artistry at IQF Houston 2019. We are very fortunate to have her share her work and talents with us in February. Don't miss this fabulous workshop.
