Lenore Crawford "Fusing/Fabric Painting to Create a Realistic Art Quilt"
"In this lecture I will talk about how I have evolved from other art media to using my own fusing technique with fabric paint to create art quilts wilth depth and color from photographs I have taken in my travels.
I will tell how I create a piece from beginning to end and give secrets I have learned on how to make your design a winner.
I have won prizes with this new style of art quilting such as the Best Wall Quilt at the 2007 AQS Nashville Show and the 2011 Moda Best Wall Quilt at the AQS Show in Paducah for "Port of Cassis" now residing at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY."
Coming in September, Anelie Belden will present a program entitled "Dresden Dance".
