Artistic Quilting with Shading & Design Techniques

Quilt It | Sue Patten-Week 3 | Episode 203

Now Sue Patten takes us to the most exciting part of her artistic quilting technique by shading the design. The previously sketched pattern is then filled in to add texture and the colors meld together. Sue shows how putting colors next to each other can change the adjacent color just as fabric color affects thread color. As for the area outside of the “embroidered” designs, Sue shows us a sampler of quilting designs to use in the un-stitched areas. Sue then shares her surprising hint to soften up a heavily stitched quilt while it’s on the machine.
