I created these collages in class last month at East Bay Heritage Quilter’s workshop with Judi Warren Bladen.
Judi’s class was based on her new book
The first collage was a quick exercise using copies of photographs provided by Judi. We were asked to create a composition quickly to get warmed up before making collages out of our own photographs that we brought in.
I created this one from my photo of an old rusty car.
In this collage, I combined photos of kayaks and an old car grill. This one seemed the most successful, so I decided to mock it up in fabric to make into an art quilt.
Once we chose the collage we wanted to create in fabric, we created a pattern and had it enlarged at a photocopy shop. The second day we auditioned fabric pinning it to the printed pattern. Here’s mine is mocked up in fabric
