International Quilt Festival Chicago

lizard3 International Quilt Festival ChicagoAre you going to quilt festival this spring? I will be teaching two classes at IQF Chicago in April.

On Thursday April 16th, I am teaching a three hour class on Tsukineko Inks.

I will demonstrate two different methods for working with the inks; the dry brush method using the fantastix foam applicators, blending colors on the fabric as you work and the second method using paint brushes and mixing the inks with aloe vera gel.

In this class we will cover a variety of painting techniques such as creating smooth gradations of color, glazing and adding fine details to work, with lots of tips for getting the best results from different types of paint.

I would love to have you in one of my classes, check your catalog and sign up now.

    judy, this is very tempting!

    i must confess to always being intimidated by these big shows, but maybe it’s time for me to gather my courage and finally venture forth. i’d love to take your classes and see all the exhibits and vendors.

    food for thought, thanks for the heads-up.

  2. Love the art here!
    I live in Denmark, the only big shows we have are far away from where I live unfortunately. It must be wonderful being there!
