Fused quilts lets you use your painting skills with fabric and quickly. Even if you have no art or quilting background, you can do this. We will use concepts like contrast and variation in value, size, shape using fused fabric. We will be using medium texture and graphic prints mostly, florals, stripes, checks, dots and other prints. If you have a favorite fabric theme, bring them.
