Hey creative friends! If you subscribe to my newsletter or social media channels, then you may have already heard about Facing Art Quilts (FAQ) Simplified— woohoo! Either way, I wanted to formally introduce it to you all here on the blog. I’m really excited about this!
Back when I was trying to decide what kind of edge finishing to use on my fabric pieces (because bindings don’t always work), I discovered facings.
Just think about it!!! Why would you want to create a portrait quilt for example, or some other art quilt and finish it with a binding which will cut off the portrait at the edges of your quilt top? No way!!! You’ll want the design to run all the way to the edges as shown in these photos.
After I mastered how to do facings, I started getting a lot of questions about my techniques for making facings. So, I knew that a course about using facings is just what my people needed.
But this isn’t just a course about facings. This step-by-step course is about making a nicely squared quilt, reducing bulk at the corners, and allowing the design on the quilt top to flow all the way to the edges – and thus keeping your viewer’s interest in your quilt.
I’ve figured out how to make facings in a way that is simple and consistently produces great results. Actually, using the techniques that I teach in this course, I’m able to spend less than an hour to finish the edges of a small to medium sized art quilt. I’ve successfully used this technique to finish the edges of thirty (30) PLUS textile art pieces.
Facing Art Quilts Simplified isn’t just about finishing your textile art piece. Nope! It’s about going pro. It’s about making your art quilts stand out!!! More importantly, my technique is so easy you’ll fall in love with it. And that’s not all. Just wait till you start getting compliments on your faced edges. 🙂
