Earlier this year I was extremely honored to join the talented faculty of the prestigious Chicago School of Fusing as an adjunct professor of special studies. As a member of the faculty I will have the privilege of joining them in a special exhibit at the Greater Chicago Quilt Exposition Thursday November 8 – Sunday November 11.
Pressing Matters II – Chicago School of Fusing
The Faculty of the Chicago School of Fusing returns with new, exciting compositions featuring the work of Frieda Anderson, Anne Lullie, Emily Parson, Ann Fahl, Judy Coates Perez and Laura Wasilowski. Each artist dyes her own fabrics, and has created her original designs using fusing as the construction technique. In addition to creating beautiful quilts and teaching at the Chicago School of Fusing, the faculty has also participated in challenging sporting events as members of The Iron Maidens. Press On, Chicago Fuse!
Not generally known as a fuser, I do use fusible web in various ways. Sometimes my fusing may be hidden inside the quilt or used on the back during construction, other times it is used in the traditional Chicago School of fusing style as shown in the Agave above.
