Dream It!, Draw It!, Fuse It!, Quilt It!  - Sue Bleiweiss

Create your own version of my wonky house quilt! Work with my pattern or customize it and make it a winter scene, make the sun a moon and it’s night scene, turn the garage into a dog house or add a clothesline strung from the tree to the house with socks hung to dry. I’ll take you through my entire art quilt making process from start to finish and you’ll learn my cookie cutter outline method for getting those black outlines around odd shaped images. You’ll also learn my methods for working with Mistyfuse fusible web, my quilt as you go method and my 4 strip fused binding technique. I’ll also show you an easy no-reverse appliqué technique that means no more flipping and reversing shapes, numbers or letters!
