Sign in
Pile of blue and white fabrics
Duration: 10:38

Collage is a great technique to try using non traditional fabrics in your quilting. In this segment, Heather will walk you through fabric selection and discuss weight, weave, color, value and style. Once you have chosen your fabric, Heather will then introduce the beginning steps of composition along with her methods of cutting and ripping. She will help you understand how to work within a “design field” and tell you about “the Golden Mean” and “the Rule of Thirds” and how these principles can help you create visually appealing art work.
