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
Optional Kit Fee $40 paid at beginning of class includes:
? Fabric Paint Brush - stiff smooth bristles
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
? Low loft polyester batting - ½ yd
Where to find your supplies for the class kit: If you wish to find your own supplies that make up the kit, by all means do so. You can customize it, use coupons and discount codes or find stuff on sale. Here I have listed the most likely places (or as in the fabric paint brush, the only place I have found them) to find the supplies.
