Painterly Little Art Quilts


One of the classes I taught in Chattanooga was Painterly Little Art quilts. We use snippets and chunks of fabric for our paint. Yes, I had a Star Student who came with her fabric snips and organized in ice cube trays! I'm going to steal this idea…


One of my students worked on a portrait of her husband, whom she lost just 3 months ago. Her little quilt progressed well during our time - when class was over, we all marveled at how she had captured him. She didn't know she was an artist!


And this little landscape - oh, so nice! She didn't lack much when class was over.


This little project came along nicely - some carrots in the ground - very sweet.

Tomorrow I'll share the fabulous quilts from one of the special exhibits.

  1. this looks an interesting technique, I presume the snippets are glued onto the fabric
