Pixel quilting is a technique where an image is made from small squares of fabric resembling pixelated photographs. This techniques while it looks complicated is a great project for a beginner quilter. Our patchwork teacher Lena will guide you step by step through this deceptively easy project.
Taught by Lena who lives in Dublin, her husband and two daughters. She grew up and spent most of my life in Kharkov, Ukraine, where she studied and worked as an English teacher at university. Lena also studied in an art school as a teenager and tried many art and craft forms before she took up patchwork and quilting.
Since moving to Ireland Lena dedicated herself to art and design, graduating with a BA in Graphic Design and honing her drawing and quilting skills to develop her own personal style. You can find out more about her work here
