    Have fun creating a one of a kind piece of art. Spend the day learning design concepts related to composition and colour.

    Start with one, two or more fabrics and each hour receive a set of instructions - 5 sets in all to complete this little art project. For example instruction #1 will be to create a background using two or more of your fabrics, instruction #2 will be designed to add to the background with each following instruction building on the previous hour's results.

    See how many different techniques can be incorporated into the piece using all kinds of media. Multiple techniques will be discussed, demonstrated and used such as creating texture with Texture Magic, curved piecing and couching to name a few.

    This little project is a tonne of fun and gets those creative juices flowing.

    For all levels of quilters.
