Make Your Own Artwork the Easy Way!

Here’s what I like about creating fused art quilts: it’s easy. And having an impatient nature, the fine art of fusing lets me get right to the design process without worrying about seam allowances. Not that I don’t make a few pieced quilts with bad seam allowances. But when it comes to making a wall quilt, fusing is the method for me.

So I’ve come up with a method of making patterns from my doodles or sketches that lets me get right to the making of the artwork.

In my new online class, Zen Doodle Art Quilts, I’ll show how easy it is to make artwork with fusing techniques. Sure, we’ll adhere to the Rules of Fusing from the Chicago School of Fusing (where I am Dean of Corrections). But you’ll also enjoy the freedom of creating our own artwork.

I hope you’ll join my new online class. Read more about it here: Zen Doodle Art Quilts here.

You Are the Designer!

Would you like to create original art work? Great! Then I have just the class for you!

In my new online class, Fused Art Quilts: Zen Doodle Quilts, you’ll learn step by step how to convert your sketches or doodles into a pattern and then into an art quilt. Along the way, you’ll learn fusing techniques like pattern transfer, collage building, and bias fusing. An important part of the class is discussing the basic principles of design when making your artwork.

You’ll discover how to embellish the work with hand embroidery stitches that really bring your artwork to life. We’ll talk about needles, threads, how to make different stitches, and the mystery of choosing thread colors.

I’m here to help you enjoy the experience of creating original artwork from start to finish! Learn more about Fused Art Quilts: Zen Doodle Quilts here.
