Class description:  Bring your flower garden to life as you experiment with two art techniques in one quilt:  intense pencils and confetti cut batiks.  Capture the subtle colors and texture of flower petals with Intense Colored Pencils on fabric background then add a punch of color with tiny pieces of Batik and hand dyed fabrics.  Use novelty quilting threads to complete your art quilt.  Here’s the class project.  Sally indicates that this is a GREAT project for both a totally new or experienced art quilter as it explores a variety of techniques with a forgiving process. Everyone can go home with a nearly complete project.
