Fusing and Art Quilts With Lisa Walton | Cosplay Design with Gayle Schliemann
(Show 2503) Lisa Walton shares her love of hand dyed fabric and surface design. As the first non-American SAQA president, she discusses SAQA and what it’s about, its founder Yvonne Porcella, and the vast scale of exhibits across the globe that they present. Next, Lisa shares a fast and fun fusible quilt design that is also a fantastic stash buster, using fine weave fabrics. Lisa then shares a technique, inspired by Bargello quilts, for creating a cityscape using staggered strips of fabric sewn to a PFD hand-painted sky. She also talks about her textile tours for quilters that include hands-on workshops.
Gayle Schliemann then stops by to talk about Cosplay, how it includes fans of costumes, comic book characters that gather at conventions around the world, and the work that goes into making a costume. She discusses how her sewing skills and BERNINA capabilities allow her to do unexpected and unique details on her costumes.
