A painting or a photograph will be combined with a grid to create an organic structure embraced within the lines. This is a great way to brake down a complex design into doable 5 inch units. You can work with applique, piecing, paper piecing or fusing to create each block. The blocks will be connected with a thin stirp of fabric to create the lines of the grid. Each little block with be constructed, quilted and embellished before they are sewn together in a quilt as you go method.
You can either work from a photograph or a painting, we will all be painting the first day to see what we would like better, creating from a painting or from an inspirational photo. I will supply canvas and/or watercolor paper to paint on.
