A native of Michigan, Karen began quilting in high school. After finding her calling as a professional quilter, Karen has been an instructor, writer and designer. She has authored nine books, including Optical Illusions for Quilters as well as Combing Through Your Scraps. She has designed a plethora of different fabric collections, both batiks and quilting cottons. She has also written many articles in magazines, appeared on various TV quilting shows and currently has an online class on Craftsy titled ‘New Directions in Tumbling Blocks’.
Visual depth has fascinated artists for centuries, Karen has developed a quick and easy rotary technique that allows you to make quilts with a 3-D look. Frankly, this is Karen's favorite class because it is so easy to create amazing quilts of illusion. Let Karen share her secrets, so you may become a master of illusion!
Karen will send pre-class information such as a fabric selection video, fabric preview video and pre-cutting videos so everyone will be ready for class. Pattern for class will be required, see supply list. Some supplies can be downloaded from Karen’s store for last minute signups. This class will need a physical pattern and/or templates that Karen will need to send ahead. Karen suggests ordering by May 1 to make sure you get the supplies on time. Once registered for the class, participants will receive a code for a discount on ordered items.
