Students taking her classes start off complaining of not being able to draw stick figures and leave with beautiful and occasionally award winning art quilts.
Lura shows how to combine various elements from different photos (hence the 'snapshot') into a united theme and balanced overall design. (the 'art quilt') She also introduces techniques for free-curved piecing and distorted traditional blocks. Her first video, Faces in Fabric, shows you how to ink faces and pets. This one shows you how to pull everything together to create a quilt that takes your skills and expertise to the next level. That is, taking you from traditional quilting to becoming a fiber artist.
