Stitched Mosaics with Timna Tarr May 2-6, 2022

Learn how to make a portrait quilt by focusing on one square at a time. This workshop is for quilters who wish to recreate a favorite photo in fabric. Favorite pets, cute kids, and garden flowers are all popular subjects, but the technique is not limited to those. Timna will break down the construction process into bite-size manageable steps so that students will come out of the workshop with the knowledge of how to approach and complete pictorial quilts. Participants will learn how to prepare a photo, make templates, choose fabrics, and the basics of machine applique. Color, value, and pattern are important parts of the process and will be a key focus of the workshop. While this prepared edge appliqué technique is best for intermediate quilters, one does not need to have an art background to make a successful portrait quilt! Bring a large color print (approx. 18”x24” or 24”x36”) of the photo you wish to use, lots of scraps of fabric, and a willingness to experiment and learn from each other. (Additional supplies may be purchased from Timna for an additional fee, if needed.)

A special note about our photos:

We have taken HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of photos over the years of our students, instructors, and staff — during classes, after classes, and at various gatherings. Throughout this brochure and on our website, you will see many photos that were taken prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Images of people without masks or not practicing social distancing were taken before the pandemic and before the safety practices were implemented. Please rest assured, we follow all of the safety precautions and guidelines mandated by our local and state health officials. Community means everything to us —we aim to provide a safe environment for all who teach and learn at MASW. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our practices, or would like more detailed information about the school’s health and safety guidelines, please do not hesitate to call or email us!
