Art Quilt Design Intensive

Denise Labadie’s Art Quilt Design Intensive workshop focuses on quilt composition, fabric painting, quilt top texturing, working from photos, and the comparative effects, benefits, and use basically, the what, why, when, and how of alternative quilt top construction and finishing techniques. The first two days are dedicated to fabric painting: how best to mix, use, and layer paint; how to create and use various resists; how to cause and control layer-by-layer differential paint absorption, diffusion, blending, patterning and mottling; and the effects of alternative fabrics. The following three days will focus on quilt top construction techniques and best practices re: turned edge appliqué, raw edge appliqué, reverse appliqué, insetting, free-form strip piecing, couching, thread shadowing (similar to thread painting), and quilt finishing.
