Montage Quilting Part One: Design

You will learn how to combine in a single composition using pictorial elements from various sources, as parts of different photographs or fragments of printing, either to give the illusion that the elements belonged together originally or to allow each element to retain its separate identity as a means of adding interest or meaning to the composition. Pick the theme, gather resource elements and put it all together to create your unique art quilt pattern with the guidance of Marilyn's expertise.

There are two parts to this workshop, both full of detailed instruction and guidance. The first part involves designing and drawing a detailed pattern of your own theme using vector based and rastor based programs. The course goes for three months in which time you will have your pattern ready to begin the second part. Part two is all about putting your design into fabric, from enlarging the design to making templates and transferring your design into fabric and stitching. By the end of this two part course, you will have your own unique art quilt. 

What Students are saying about our online classes

"Ruth's classes are more than just a learning experience, they are FUN! The class material is presented in an exceptional way that is easy to read and clear as fine crystal to understand. It's so obvious that she not only enjoys teaching, she loves what she teaches! She is beyond patient, and will do everything in her power to help the students create beautiful pieces of art. I look forward to her classes and can't wait to see what she's going to offer next."
