In this workshop, Katie Pasquini Masopust will share the secrets of her innovative method, of layers of transparency through ghost layers and color washes. As part of the process towards creating a 18″ quilt, you will create a base block, add a ghost layer (an abstract or geometric shape which seems to float through the image), paint a watercolor wash on paper to construct a color scheme, and finally combine layers into a cohesive design. Katie will also cover color sorting, cutting and turning the applique pieces, sewing onto stabilizer, and machine quilting.

For nearly 30 years Katie Pasquini Masopust has produced high quality contemporary art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers.

Katie’s easy, energetic manner has made her a very popular teacher and lecturer. When not in residence at her studio in Santa Fe she travels the world presenting her contemporary quilting theories and techniques to classes; not only in North America, but in Europe, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand. Awards and accolades have been numerous for Katie, culminating with her 2005 induction into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival.
