Do you want to learn new creative techniques so you can vary your quilts? Surface design is just one of the many tools you can have in your toolbox of quilting techniques. What is surface design? Surface design is any technique that manipulates or changes the surface of a fabric. This would include: painting, dyeing, printing/stamping, stenciling, applying resists, stitching, embellishing (e.g. adding beads), collaging, etc.
