Linda Poole

We're excited to announce that one of our featured teachers at Quilt Fest 2016 will be LINDA M. POOLE - National and International Instructor and Speaker, fabric designer, and author of 5 books.

Change the way you think of applique with this new approach by Linda.  Rather than using individual fabric pieces for applique, Linda shows how to use one piece of fabric and paints to achieve beautiful, artistic, appliqued quilts.  Painted applique in fun, easy, and makes your quilts sing.  Linda also shows her pattern quilted in various ways and with a variety of embellishments and extra-special finishing touches.  Even if you have never painted before or feel you are not an artist, you will be creating lovely painted applique quilts of your own in no time with Linda's encouraging and instruction.

Author of "Turkish Delights to Applique, Blended Bias Applique, Quilted Fairie Tales, and Painted Applique: A New Approach" her life revolves around photography, writing, painting, and sewing.  Linda says "let things you see in my books be a springboard for your imagination.  Each pattern gives you choices - use commercial fabrics, paint your fabric, or do both!"  You'll find her at lindampoole.com or check out her blog at www.lmpoole.blogspot.com
