Walk through the door of Lonni Rossi’s place which is a combination of a quilting studio and retail store in Ardmore, Pennsylvania and you will be surrounded by color. Lonni, Mark’s door knock this month, is a graphic designer, fabric designer, color specialist, art quilt maker, pattern designer and teacher! She is known far and wide as the queen of surface design.
She shows Mark different quilt fabric techniques such as: stamped, silk screened, hand painted, dyed, discharged and stenciled in layers. These quilt fabric techniques all result in contemporary, abstract and large scale motifs with interesting and unusual textures and beautiful colors. Painting with thread on her art quilts adds yet another dimension to what has been accomplished at the surface design table. In addition, Lonni designs fabric lines for Andover. All hail the queen and her beautiful work!
Then head over to the 3rd video which discusses painting designs onto your quilt fabric.
