Last Friday Sue was fortunate to be able to take a class with fabric collage artist Susan Carlson at the Quilters Unlimited show in Northern Virginia. Susan is a well-known award-winning national teacher; her most recent creation is a 22' X 6' alligator called Stevie which you can see here.
She had numerous wonderful examples, each more intriguing than the next. The one below was my favorite.
After some basic instruction we got started drawing our spirals and choosing our fabrics.
I got most of the orange section complete. The background section will be teal/turquoise.
Her technique uses glue to hold things in place on a muslin foundation until the quilting stage.
Here are a few of her other wonderful pieces.website to see more of her fabulous creations!
