Faces of 2021!
Freddy and Jean are back again to share all their friends and faces
On Monday morning, we start out with just scraps, your own scraps plus Jean & Freddy’s scraps. We do this so that you can get traction and confidence. The plan: Start with scraps and don’t worry that you have to cut up some new, favored fabric – just do it! Don’t worry if it’s the best thing you’ve ever done. – just do it! You will be delighted and surprised and the “personalities” you will watch grow in your portrait as you collage your way through their technique.
Watch Freddy and Jean create in front of you to see how they approach a portrait. Then watch Jean “finish” up Freddy’s and her own. Learn the quilting techniques that Jean uses to make Freddy’s portraits come alive with names, stories and quilting techniques.
Learn how and why Jean names each portrait and where her stories come from. Freddy and Jean will help your name and story yours if you like.
Be prepared to make a room full of friends, (real and portrait friends). Portrait size is typically fat quarter size or slightly larger. Freddy and Jean have an Etsy site with hundreds of faces. Get some ideas and inspiration from there. Bring your fabrics, bring your scissors and glue sticks and let’s have some fun.
If you would like to finish and quilt your projects there, please bring your sewing machine(s) with capabilities to Free Motion and straight line quilt.
