Learn to make a painted whole cloth quilt - this is not a panel or an applique, it is one solid piece of white fabric that has been painted with textile paints. Simple step-by-step methods will take you through preparing fabric and marking a design on white fabric. Use free motion quilting to stitch the design out and explore the exciting addition of acrylic textile paints to color in your quilted design. Students will review appropriate brushes, tools, and pens, and how to use them in their projects to paint, blend, and highlight the quilted motif plus mastering the ability to paint a background with no paint bleed.

Students can gather up their own supplies if they wish. You will need all the supplies on both lists. Please review where to find all the supplies after the kit contents and supply list
