Teacher Spotlight: Sue Bleiweiss

Sue's modern, clean-lined quilts have won many awards over the years. She will teach two classes during the first week of QSDS.  Sue is a fuser: the parts of her quilts that look like they might be pieced are actually fused.
Her five-day class will focus on working this way, starting with sketches then creating a quilt. Line is an important element in her work and that is the focus of her weekend class during Session 2.  She often creates lines from fused fabric But she is also a master of machine quilting, so students are sure to become more confident about their machine quilting skills.
Sue is the author of several books, with another one in the works.  Like many quilt artists, she uses her sketchbook to record ideas and start working out designs.  She authored a book about the wildly successful Sketchbook Challenge.  Check out her classes, the supply lists and more images of her work here:
