Show 1206 - The Magical World of Mixed Media

Featuring: Lauren Vlcek

Posts On: March 11, 2013


Dollmaker, mixed-media artist, and TQS classroom teacher Lauren Vlcek enjoys combining her various talents to create one-of-a-kind mixed-media pieces. In this info-packed show, Lauren demonstrates how she uses her deconstructed crazy-quilt technique to make a small wall shrine, sharing tons of tips for fabric selection, pressing, decorative machine stitching, and embellishment along the way. She also shows how to insert a reverse-appliqué "window frame" in a pieced block background, and a variety of ways to employ the results. But that's not all: Ricky also shares tips for working with guild exchange blocks, and offers a few potential block suggestions (available on the TQS website).
