Turn all of those scrap pieces you have been saving into an amazing art quilt landscape! Don't have scraps? No worries! Marilyn will teach you how to turn fabric pieces into scraps.

In this class you will learn how to cut, organize, piece, thread paint and finish a beautiful landscape. We will even learn a bit about basic art principles. This is such a fun way to create a stunning piece of art and all from those scraps you didn't know what to do with! You won't be using a pattern but you will be amazed at how easy and exciting it is to step out of your comfort zone and let the creativity flow!  Marilyn is so looking forward to working with you!
