About Evelyn Judson
I have been quilting for over 30 years, partly inspired by my grandmother and
aunts who were lifetime quilters. I make both traditional and contemporary quilts,
and everything in between, as the fancy takes me. I have exhibited at Visions in
San Diego and have won ribbons at the IQA show in Houston. I hand and
machine quilt. I do painstaking exact piecing and quick curvy fusing. I embellish
old clothes. I bead. I am thread painting more and more. I have a passion for
color and texture. I teach classes and give lectures to guilds. My education was
in science and I am utterly surprised and delighted by the undeniable fact that I
am an artist.
Classes offered-- full day workshops.
Perfect Piecing--square blocks, exact points, curves, and other things to think about (and how to do them) for when the Quilt Police (or judges)
might be looking. See Storm at Sea, Diann's Quilts, Broken Star, Flying Fans, and A River runs Through It.
Foundation Piecing--several different styles to master this piecing technique
Quilting from Nature--how to make your quilt look like the real flower (or bird, or landscape, or rock, or whatever) rather than a stylized model.
Includes thinking about depth and light and shadow as well as how to make it look like the exact species.....See Mammoth Hot Springs, Cardinal
Flowers. Malachite and Malachite II, Redschance.
Thread Painting--make a whole-cloth picture or embellish your piecing or applique. We will be making little samples like Fantasy Flowers,
Fireworks, and Duncan's Knots. See also Mammoth Hot Springs and Yin and Yang.
Lectures offered--one hour talks.
Trunk Show--what I've made and how I got here
"They're all Art Quilts!!!!!"
