Saguaro art quilt

Icons on the Landscape Art Quilt Workshop

Fabric collage is a fun and versatile technique that allows you to create beautiful works of art.

Join me for a one-of-a-kind workshop where you will create landscape icons that celebrate the beauty of nature. With my expert instruction, you will learn how to select fabrics, cut and arrange your pieces, and use a variety of techniques to create texture, depth, and visual interest in your art quilt.

Whether you’re a seasoned quilter or a beginner, you’ll leave this workshop with a unique piece that you can hang on your wall for all to admire. 

Many icons are seen on the landscapes that surround us:

The Inukshuk surrounded by the northern lights. 

A majestic Polar Bear wandering the frozen tundra as the sun sets. 

A Lone White Pine is windswept on a rocky shore. 

A Saguaro standing tall reaching towards the sky. 

Pattern purchase required. Choose one of the 4 Icons patterns for the workshop.
