Join art quilter Ana Buzzalino to explore two distinct approaches to creating painted and stitched quilts. One method is to first create a quilted canvas (“quilt first, then paint”); the second method is to paint a wholecloth design first, and then quilt. Ana teaches her painting technique (used for both approaches), discussing the tools and materials, as well as background painting, detail work, and blending techniques. By using a consistent painted motif throughout, Ana illustrates the diverse results one can achieve. She also demonstrates ways to machine quilt a painted piece, including different filler motifs, and she shares hand embroidery stitches. You’ll be inspired to create your own painted, quilted, and embroidered pieces.
