Hello! I’m so happy you are joining me today. I am kicking off a blog tour in support of my recently released Quilting Arts Workshop Video, Surface Design Essentials for the Printed Quilt.
In the video, I distill my years of experience with four favorite surface design techniques—cyanotype, heliography, collagraphy, and thermofax printing—using clear and concise demonstrations. There are examples of how I use prints in my work, as well as chapters on the basics of quilt design. Whether you are new to surface design, or want to add to your existing design toolbox, there’s something here for everyone.
To help spread the word about the video’s release, I asked some of the artists and bloggers I admire most to participate in my blog tour. To keep things interesting, both for all of us and for our readers, I didn't ask them for anything specific. Each one is a seasoned professional, with a strong body of work and a distinctive voice and online presence. So I simply asked them to view and review the video as they saw fit. I am really looking forward to being surprised and delighted by their posts!
