My Favorite Things – Art Quilt with Lorraine Turner

A new online subscription only instructional art group.


DATE: – Beginning November 6th

Join me as we create a beautiful art quilt using Inktense INK pencils! No drawing experience is necessary, beginners are welcome. If you are interested please let me know and I will send you an invoice, zoom link and an invitation to my private instructional FaceBook group.

Learn how to illustrate one block at a time as we build an art quilt customized to YOUR FAVORITE THINGS.

Think of 9 items you wish to include in telling YOUR story. We shall each be doing something different and all will be unique.

For example, I love: ice skating, baking, reading, painting, going to the beach, watching wild horses, meditation, sewing, drinking coffee. My art quilt will be illustrated with MY favorite things and yours will focus on YOU. Together we will trace, stitch and paint with Inktense pencils.This is a great way to LEARN and have fun with others during this time of isolation.


Fabric Art Fridays
will begin from November. I will not be recording this, however you will be able to record the zoom meetings on your own.

This is a subscription membership for a onetime price of $40. Meetings will be one hour.
We shall kick it off Friday, November 6, 3PM EST.

10 monthly sessions in all. Come join the fun!
