Class Description:

Spend the day with coloring crayons, pencils, fabric and your sewing machine. This is a brand new technique developed by LuAnn Kessi to create Fabric Portrait Quilts. The best part is, this is a beginner level class. Yes, you can create a quilted portrait, no experience necessary, and you will have great fun learning how. This process is as simple as coloring in a child's coloring book. Come into JLC and view the portrait quilts on display and sign up for class!

Students will learn:
The use of Neocolor II Crayons and Inktense Watercolor Pencils.
How to Audition Threads and Fabrics to complement the portrait.
Simple Free Motion Quilting.
Cord Bound Edge Treatment.
Fast Fused Binding Treatment.
Hanging Triangles & Fast Fused Label.
Students will create a small journal size portrait in class.
The instructor will provide the portraits pre-printed on fabric.

Hope to see you in class in June!

Your work is gorgeous! I found your website yesterday by looking for neocolor tutorials and am fascinated by your technique!

I live in FL and have always loved Oregon! Love love love your photo albums! Wish I could take your class! I'll look forward to your posts - signed up for email subscription! Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

Wow! I just love your work! I stumbled upon it by accident by clicking 'next blog', to begin with I thought I was looking at paintings! I live in the UK, I feel very far away, I would love to take one of your classes! I am dreaming I think!

Thank you all of your kind and supportive comments about the portraits on fabric. I do understand the distance issue when it comes to taking a class. Just so costly to travel a long distance to take a class. Fortunately, I have supplied you with several tutorials on this blog so that those of you who cannot attend a class, can give it a try at home. Just follow the tutorials and jump right in and give it a might just like it.
Wishing you continued success in all you do,

How I wish I were closer to Oregon. I would love to take a class of yours. I would love to do portraits like these. I want to try your tutorials. I don't know how I stumbled on your site but I know it was meant to be. Thanks.
