Turn your favorite photographs into fabric works of art with this class from Leni Wiener. Using a still life photograph, work alongside Leni to break the picture into sections, make a pattern, and choose just the right fabrics for each of the sections and the background.

Leni shows many of her own quilts and examples of why some fabrics work while others do not.

Use her freezer paper method and see how your piece comes together like a puzzle with all the pieces fitting together.

See options for constructing your project with or without batting. You can finish it as a quilt or as an art piece with her special pillowcase treatment that allows for easy turning once the stitching is complete.

Leni shows how to use her technique with portraits and more complicated images also so you can select photographs you love and use them to make stunning art quilts of your own.

For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.


Leni, a former photographer, describes her work as “representational fabric collage.” Her method uses photographs of people to make art pieces comprised of layers of unexpected fabric patterns. Using raw-edge appliqué, Leni’s projects gain added dimension by the natural puckering and fraying of fabrics. The end result is absolutely breathtaking fabric art. Her work has been included in many juried and invitational shows around the world. Leni, also an author and blogger, leads classes, lectures, and workshops. While being an excellent instructor and communicator, she especially enjoys coaching emerging artists to help them find their unique artistic voice.
