Creating New Fabric Workshop

Have you every wanted to create your very own orginal fabric? If so this workshop is for you! You will create new fabrics with fusing techniques to use for backgrounds and/or motifs. This is a creative approach that will enhance your art quilts. Each person will end up with a small individual piece of work.

This was the descriptor for the workshop which I tutored yesterday for the Quilters' Guild of SA. Everyone enjoyed the workshop and they had fun making teir hew fabrics. The photos below are some of work in progress - can't wait until they all finish them all.
