Painted Pictorial Quilts

For the first time, and over a year ago, I signed up for a class at Craftsy

I thought I would begin the class when I had the time.

Silly me.  I am old enough to know that there is never any time, but the now.  Right now.

So I have begun, and I am enjoying the class very much.  Thank goodness Craftsy classes do not expire!  This is turning out to be a very good experience!

The class, Painted Pictorial Quilts, is taught by Annette Kennedy.  Annette is a photographer, pattern maker, fiber artist, painter, traveler and teacher.

This is the calla lily sampler that I am learning to paint with.  I am using Pebeo Setacolor transparent paints.  The background and lily fabrics are my own hand-dyed fabrics.  The stem and leaf fabrics are commercial batiks.

I must say, I am pretty pleased with myself!
