How to Make Slabs and Curves with Cheryl Arkison | Quilt Studio Tour Catherine Kleeman
(Show 1911) Cheryl Arkison shares Slabs and Curves, two fast, fun and very addictive methods for sewing together elements that allow you to build a quilt in a very short amount of time. She then shares how these basics can be used as a jumping off point for more creativity. She also introduces us to the term and design approach she calls Low Volume. Cheryl, artist and writer, juggles a quilting career along with a busy house filled with three children, so finding time for personal creativity can be a challenge. When you only have snippets of time in your day, it’s about ‘getting into the zone’ every day to just ‘do some sewing’.
The Quilt Show visits the studio of fiber artist Catherine Kleeman, who loves to create surface design and texture by shrinking a quilted piece in the washing machine before adding paint and other elements.
