rosalie dace quilt workshop

Nature has crafted trees to be the largest life forms that have ever existed on our planet. They have given shelter, shade, food, and inspiration for centuries to artists, poets, and storytellers. Let us celebrate their beauty and diversity by using them as a basis for composition and design. In this class we will discover the different shapes, patterns, lines, textures, colours, and symbolism of trees; while experimenting with design, and using various piecing and appliqué techniques to make a beautiful quilt top. These will include foundation piecing, block making, and appliqué (hand, machine and reverse). There will be a feast of visual inspiration, as well as discussions on embroidery, quilting, and finishing.

So "branch out," and try something new by making a stunning, well designed quilt top based on trees. You may choose to make representational tree images, or branch out into something completely new.

Elizabeth Barton

Elizabeth was born and educated in York, England, then emigrated to the United States in 1976, where she has lived in Missouri and Georgia. She has degrees in Psychology, and has taken many art and surface design classes. Elizabeth resigned from the University of Georgia several years ago to devote herself full time to travelling, teaching, and making art quilts. In her work, she attempts to address both conceptual and formal issues. She wishes to explore the beauty of everyday environments, and feels that in troubled times it is especially important to be aware of beauty and wonder. Her aim is to make work that glows with light and is rich with color and nuance; in which the unified composition is satisfying, but the details are fascinating.
