Learn to make a mixed-media quilt using a variety of fun and non-intimidating techniques with artist Jeannie Palmer Moore. Following Jeannie’s step-by-step process, you can achieve a painterly style on a piece that includes stitched outlines and layers of interest from transfers and paper elements.

Get started by tracing and then free-motion stitching a simple contour drawing on canvas. Next, water-soluble crayons are used to color the design (no need to stay within the lines). The colors are blended using a paintbrush, and Jeannie demonstrates basic design techniques, including how to create dimension with shadows and highlights. To build up the layers and create more interest, newsprint transfers (on organza) and transfers from color photocopies are added. Jeannie shares two techniques for making transfers: a full image transfer and a deconstructed image transfer using a Thermofax screen. And finally, one more mixed-media element is added: stitched deli-wrap paper.

Join Jeannie to learn her methods for combining all of these techniques into a colorful mixed-media quilt.

Quilting Arts TV and Video Taping

Just got back from chilly Cleveland where I taped 3 TV segments with Pokey and my own hour long video all in one day...phew! Also did a short video for a future e-mag. So hopefully by Irvine I will have my Stitch and Paint Video available.

Independent Study with Jane Dunnewold

In January I spent a week in San Antonio with Leslie Tucker Jenison during Jane Dunnewold's Independent Study week. The 10 of us had such a great time! The whole week was charged with energy and creativity. I worked on my "tomatoes" for SAQA's Seasonal Palette. Screening on top of my silk tie transfers. I came home very motivated.
