More fun with fabric!!! Let your creativity flow.

See the tabs below to learn more about this workshop.

Abstract improv piecing is the hot new “thing” in quilting today. Donalee is excited to share her techniques with you. You’ll have the opportunity to complete a 24” square (approximately) that you can later make into a wall piece, pillow top, or make eight more (on your own) and have a 72” square!

In class I’ll talk about what makes a good composition, how to combine colors and patterns to create a dynamic piece. The $35.00 supply fee covers all the fabrics for you to choose from to make the 24” pieced square.

I’m an abstract contemporary improv textile artist. What does that mean? Basically, I use fabric, paint, dyes, and thread to create, colorful works of art that don’t fit neatly into any one category.

My approach to making art is a lot like the way I used to make jewelry. I don’t have a rigid plan when I start a piece; instead, I let the materials guide me and see where the creative process takes me. It’s a completely spontaneous process. I like to work with different surface textures and materials; many l’ve created out of solid white fabric, to help my pieces tell the story.

Sometimes I use traditional techniques, but I also like to experiment with unexpected materials to push the boundaries of what textiles can be. When I stand back and look at my work, I’m personally filled with a sense of joy and delight viewing the contrasts. With bold brushstrokes, delicate hand embroidery, and unexpected colors, I aim to create pieces that invite viewers to explore and engage with the work in their own unique way. Sparking conversations and connections that might be meaningful to them.
