Last week I had the honor and privilege to teach at the SandHills Quilters Guild. I lectured on the use of color in art quilting and taught the Fused Applique and Paint workshop. I stayed at the lovely home of Pat Smith, where I was wined and dined, by her husband, the chef. Pat showed me her extensive wet and dry studio and now I have extreme studio envy!
I love to teach realistic painting on textiles because when we started the class, most of the ladies were doubting their abilities, to say the least. By the middle of the 2nd day, when they were painting their morning glories and angel’s trumpets, they were shocked at what they had created!
Take a look at what they made in just 6 hours!:
Obviously, some need some more targeted painting, and will ultimately be layered and quilted. I’m so proud of my 11 lovely ladies!!!
If you would like me to teach for your group or guild, let me know as my 2012 schedule is filling up fast- no really, people say that, but mine actually is!
