Diana Describes Her Class: “In this class, I will show my technique for developing photos into pictorial quilts. First, we will be using one of my designs to explore ways to use your favorite colored pencils on fabric. You will learn ways to blend and shade to create dimension. Next, I will show you how I develop a photo into a quilt, and we will go over ways to finish your quilt. You can also bring 2 photos of your choice (pick photos with single images). I will take you through the steps to create your own pictorial quilt from your photo.”
