Show 2005 - Free-Form Collage and Embroidery

Featuring: Laura Fogg / Ann Horton

Posts On: February 26, 2017


Have you ever wanted to create a landscape without the fuss of complicated pattern pieces? Laura Fogg's method of fast, free-form collage will open your eyes to the possibilities of creating stunning impressionistic designs. Building a landscape begins with a base, onto which is layered free-cut fabrics, cheesecloth, yarn, and other elements to create a multi-layered interest and depth. She then "draws" on the collage using free-motion quilting.
Ann Horton shares her technique for creating a stunningly realistic three-dimensional butterfly using machine embroidery. Ann's free-form embroidery adds another layer of texture when it comes to making her award-winning quilts.

She talks about her award-winning quilts and says she feels a deep connection to the people, places, and culture of the subject of each of her themed quilts. She demonstrates her method of free-form embroidery as she creates a butterfly on a base foundation of thread.
