Please note updated class length & fee from information previously posted

Susan Carlson
Cutting Loose

This class demonstrates a looser approach to the piecing and assembly of a wall quilt. Emphasis will be placed on the collage piecing process. Patterns or templates will not be used. Instead, students will sketch their design onto a foundation fabric and fill in the design with fabrics of their choice. This encourages playfulness, serendipity, and a willingness to “cut loose.” Due to time constraints, students need to create a fish, butterfly, or bug. Optional designs will be available from Susan for a small fee.
