Painted Pictorial Quilts

with Annette Kennedy
Painted Pictorial Quilts
Brushstroke by brushstroke, Annette Kennedy shows you how to use paint to bring your quilted landscapes to life with depth and richness.

Annette uses two included projects to show you how to add visual depth to your own quilted images. In 15 beautiful HD video lessons, Annette teaches you how to choose, mix and adjust paint colors to get the perfect hue every time. You'll discover how to turn a photograph into a line drawing, select a palette of colorful fabric, and build a fused appliqué design. Finally, brushstroke by brushstroke, Annette teaches you the painting techniques that turn 2-D fabric shapes into rich and lifelike creations. Her thorough instruction will give you the confidence to let your imagination run wild with your painted quilts.

"I haven't even started the second project but already know this is the best thing that could have happened to my creative world. I have been longing to create something more then just a traditional quilt, and had already started collecting paints and things months before I knew this class existed. I had no idea where to begin and this class has given me a launching point. Annette explains the purpose behind each step so clearly and the techniques will carry with me in my future projects! Fantastic! From one Army wife to another thanks so much!"
