Mini Mosaic Wall Quilt
Quilt Dimenstions (6" x 12")
In this workshop, students will learn my original technique of using a digital cutter to create a mini mosaic quilt. In the first part of the class, we will cover the basics of how to use a digital cutter. I will demonstrate how easy it is to create and cut shapes. Next, we’ll discuss how to prepare your fabrics with starch and fusible, how to use cutting mats and how to work with freezer paper templates to build your quilt top design. Then students will work with a partner to get hands-on practice using a digital cutter to create and cut fabric shapes. In the second part of the class, you will use the digital cutter skills you just learned to make a small mosaic wall quilt. Using one of my own digital designs and a pre-made fabric kit, you will digitally cut and build your own mosaic quilt top. Once the quilt tops are complete, we will fuse, layer and free motion stitch our mini quilts together.
