PAINTED QUILT ART WORKSHOP WITH PATT BLAIR
at Holiday Inn Auburn, CA
April 18, 2016 to April 21, 2016
This workshop is perfect for those who don't draw, don't paint, or don't usually quilt their own work, but wish they could.
Patt was originally an oil painter, then watercolorist, now an art quilter/fabric painter. She has been teaching nationally and internationally since 2004 when she won the Sulky Challenge Grand prize for her ink and thread painted ballerina piece, "First Call". Patt continues to compete and teach at International Quilt Festivals, recently winning IQA's Master Award for Machine Artistry. We at The Whistle Stop are thrilled to be hosting this event with Patt.
