1. Is this technique hard? When I look at Leni’s art quilts, it is intimidating.
Photographs are broken down into elements so you are not working on the whole photograph at once. The methods are explained in clear terms and Leni guides you every step of the way as you make the pear project together. Her ability to convey an idea or direction is excellent. Leni spends several lessons on portraits and more complex images if you want to develop the technique even more. Dive in. Make the pears with Leni in class. You’ll be amazed at how much you learn along the way!
2. Will I be able to think like an artist when it comes to fabric selection?
Leni says, “Color adds drama and excitement.” Feeling confident about fabric selection is important as you engage in this process, and this class may well change the way you look at and purchase fabric! Leni talks about color, value, print scale, saturation, and complementary colors in an easy-to-understand manner. Her examples drive home the ideas she is trying to communicate. This class has such good information about color and fabric selection that it will likely positively affect your color and fabric choices in all of your future art or quilting projects.
3. Does Leni always make traditional three-layer quilts using her methods?
Traditional quilts (a top, batting, and backing) can be made using Leni’s technique. For a somewhat different finish, Leni shows how to sew projects without batting. Also, she gives a step-by-step demonstration of a pillowcase finish that is easy to turn right-side out. It’s really your choice as to how you would like to finish your fabric art, but Leni gives you several options to consider.
4. What if I have questions?
We recommend that you watch the class in its entirety and become familiar with the downloadable materials. At that point, if something is unclear, go to the tab that allows you to ask a question and Leni will get back with you via email. Please do not contact iquilt instructors by telephone.
5. When can I start the class?
We know you are excited to get started. After you have purchased the class, you can enjoy it anywhere and anytime you have the Internet. The class belongs to you, so watch it as many times as you like!
