How to Create Digital Collage Quilts with Judy Ahlborn
(Show 2110) Judy Ahlborn grew up surrounded by a family of artists. It’s no wonder with her love of painting, sewing, and computers she ended up with a degree in Textiles and Technology. She started making collage style quilts using software after her retirement from a career in computer science.
Judy uses Photoshop to create background fabric. She then layers it with paint and thread stitching through which she achieves a subtle, translucent quality. Her work is completed by adding Peltex and backing fabric and finishing the edge with a non-traditional binding technique.
In the After Set, Judy shares her other talent as she demonstrates the acrobatics that she keeps up with to this day. Follow along with The Quilt Show cameras as Ricky and Justin share their town of La Veta, Colorado.
