Yesterday I mentioned that I took a class from Laura Wasilowski at MAQF. She is a well known art quilter who does fusible applique with her own hand dyed fabrics. Her quilts are embellished with lots of hand stitching, also using her own hand dyed threads. The colors are bright and cheerful. She is a fun (and entertaining) teacher and one of the founders of the Chicago School of Fusing. (It must be noted here for those who don't know, the Chicago School is not an actual "school" in the brick and mortar sense.) This was a no-stress class, no machine needed; just fuse, plan, cut, fuse. Press on!
