Featuring: Velda Newman

Posts On: August 1, 2011


For years, contemporary quilt artist, author, and teacher Velda Newman has wowed the quilt world with her amazing, up-close renderings of flowers, fruit, and other natural subjects. In this technique-and-tip-packed show, Velda demonstrates how to paint on fabric (using an apple from her quilt, Sunkissed) and how to create a realistic, dimensional leaf with pintucks. In addition, Velda discusses how to design for scale with the aid of a photograph. If you've ever wondered how she does it, this is the show that will tell you. Don't miss it!
