Houston Quilt Festival workshop, Friday, November 4, 2011 "Dreaming in Canvas: A Painted Quilt"

Friday's workshop was super-fun, and our students made gorgeous collaboratively painted canvases and then turned their sections into beautiful, unique quilts!  At the end of the day it was difficult to believe that these quilts originated from the same canvases.  Everyone had a unique take on the project.
Here are a few shots of the progression of the paintings, followed by the quilts:



we even picked up some monoprints on watercolor postcards!
