What People Are Saying

Mary Lowe
Judi is the only teacher who made me feel like a successful art quilter. She guided us, questioned us and allowed us to develop our own interpretation.
Fay Martin
Most recent books on art quiltmaking concentrate on surface design and embellishment techniques. By contrast, collage+cloth=quilt gets back to the basics in art quiltmaking, guiding the student to focus on those aspects of a piece that make it artful—composition, line, value, color. By manipulating my own images into a pleasing and meaningful collage composition, using fabric in all its richness as the interpretive medium, and with Judi's guidance as a master art teacher, both conceptually and technically, I was able to produce a piece that went beyond my expectations. Having experienced the workshop and Judi's masterful teaching I feel more confident in my ability to actually produce an artful quilt. Judi's workshop taught me a new way of seeing and thinking about the art of quiltmaking and my abilities to successfully engage in it.
Carol Gilham
Judi's process, solidly grounded in classic design principles yet fluidly accommodating of different aesthetics, fosters extraordinary creativity. She teaches you how to design a quilt by combining elements and images from your own photographs. Thus, the quilt you make is a purely individual expression of your own composition as well as of your fabric and finishing choices.

Meet the Author

Judi Warren Blaydon grew up observing that almost the only days her grandmother's dining room table was not covered by a quilt-in-progress were Thanksgiving and Christmas. She also learned that fabric was a more valuable commodity than a fur coat and that heirloom family quilts were to be treated as treasures. Judi began as a painter, making large acrylic paintings about quilts. It was that same grandmother who said, If you love them so much, why don't you make a real one? With a background in art education, Judi began teaching The Great American Quilt class in the School of Design Adult Program at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio in 1976. She currently lectures, judges, and teaches for conferences and guilds in the United States, Switzerland, and Japan. Judi's Master of Fine Arts degree was perhaps one of the earliest in which the major media was quilts. Her work has been shown at the New England Quilt Museum, at Quilt National and Crafts National exhibitions, and represented in public and private collections in the United States, Australia, and Japan. Her quilts are in 28 books, including Nihon Vogue's 88 Leaders in the Quilt World Today and Robert Shaw's The Art Quilt. Her quilt The Mountain and the Magic: Night Lights is in the permanent collection of the Museum of the American Quilter's Society in Paducah, Kentucky. Judi and her husband, Frank, live in Milford, Michigan, where Judi makes her quilts and where her flower garden is primarily a salad bar enjoyed by deer and rabbits. Judi will be happy to schedule a Collage+Cloth=Quilt workshop for your group. Contact her at blay555 at yahoo dot com for information about her lectures and workshops.
