Show 1609 - Transforming Quilts from Real Life

Featuring: Lea McComas

Posts On: April 27, 2015

Trailer


Fiber Artist, Teacher and Author Lea McComas shows how she transforms her love of travel, faces and historical images into works of art. Her photo images are transformed via cropping, manipulating value and color, and even using gray scale. From designing, constructing, and on through intricate stitch work, Lea changes plain fabrics into realistic and vivid images. She also shares some of the antique textiles she picked up in her travels. Plus, bonus! Alex offers a clever method for facing a quilt while adding a built-in sleeve. This is a great technique for smaller quilts, when a common binding is too much.
