Creative Webinar: Designing Hand Printed Fabric for Quilting

Hand printed fabrics add a certain pizzazz to a quilt. They can blend in happily with other fabrics or be the heroes that shine. They can make a project unique and enable you to print exactly what you need. In this webinar Karen Lewis will talk through the merits of both screen printed and block printed designs; demos of the two techniques; play around with layouts of designs to get different looks; along with how to incorporate your designs with other quilting fabrics into your projects.
