Creative Word Art Design Workshop

Creative Word Art  Design
Translate your favorite quotation, first name, family name or milestone into a quilt. Create original designs with letters, words, your sense of humor, or give free advice. We will use text as background, create cut outs, use positive / negative images and do many more exercises.  Brainstorm to create first on paper and then on fabric using multiple resources.
Create your own quilts or personalize them for gifts.

A few fat quarters in a variety of colors, fabric with text, fabric with text in selvedges, paper, pencil, color pencils/ markers, blank index cards, glue stick, ruler, rotary cutter and mat, scissors. Sewing machine, batting, backing, a yard of fusible web, and basic sewing supplies.

Optional supplies: Laptop or smartphone, word/ letter stamps and inkpads, Diecuttter and text dies if you own them.  Buttons, charms, scrabble tiles, found objects, ric rac, trims, zippers                                      

The pictures below include some of my work.

This workshop is for the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild in May 2017.
