After providing a brief overview of the materials she uses, Judy covers the design stage, including how she uses photo-editing software to manipulate and size her original designs. Next, she dives right into the painting stage with a look at the tools needed for painting; an in-depth review of the types and properties of paints is included. Also considered are strategies for painting, paint consistency, freezer-paper masks, and the painting of backgrounds. Next, learn to machine quilt your wholecloth quilt, from planning and marking to layering, basting, and free-motion quilting. Then, non-traditional binding options for art quilts are covered. Finally, Judy shares a gallery of some of her finished wholecloth painted quilts while offering additional insight into her methods and materials. You’ll be inspired to create your own wholecloth piece.
