Results of the Quilting and Painting Tart Kit

Sue Anne used a machine quilting practice piece and rolled on a pink Lumiere paint to use as the background for this small quilt. The woman in the center is a picture that has been copied and sealed with an acrylic spray. She used watercolor pencils to lightly tint the face, arms, and hair. The polka dot dress is tissue paper that has been put into place with gel medium. She has embellished the piece with scrapbook flowers, ribbon, and punched shapes. The piece is bordered on two sides with found lace.

Jamie's painted piece started as an unfinished hand quilting project. There are several layers of paint rolled onto the piece as well as area painting with a brush. The center feather is beaded and highlighted with a Shiva paintstik. It has been stretched over stretcher bars for hanging.

Sue used tulips as inspiration for these art pieces. The quilts are only free motion quilting and paint. Sue painted with Lumiere to give color to the flowers and highlight the leaves. The backgrounds are also Lumiere which was rolled on.
