FANTASTIC FUSION with Lisa Walton

  • Are you ready to take the leap and design your own quilts?
  • Are you a bit nervous about where to start?
  • Do you want more freedom with your quilts?
  • Do you want to learn a simple technique that will open up a whole new world of creativity?

Then this is the workshop for you!

Lisa will teach you to be comfortable with your tools and to free up some of your inhibitions regarding fabric choices, free form cutting, and original designs.  This will result in you creating original quilts.  You will be in control of your creativity.

What will you learn in this class?

  • How to use fusible web with fabrics to allow freedom of design
  • Basic color and design principles
  • A REALLY SIMPLE technique of cutting and layering fabrics to create designs that would be incredibly difficult using traditional piecing techniques
  • How to do improvised quilting
  • An easy but professional facing finishing technique for your quilt.

You will be amazed at how freeing (and fun) this technique is!
