You have a collection of photos of cherished family members, dear friends, and interesting people you’ve met along the way, and a love of fabric. Combine the two to make realistic fabric portrait quilts. Let Lea McComas teach you her award-winning techniques for translating photo into fiber. Don’t be intimidated as she breaks down the process in easy to follow steps that will allow you to master fused, raw-edge applique portraits using fat-quarter fabrics for your first project. Create portrait quilts that will be prized holiday, anniversary, and birthday gifts, or artwork for your own home.
