Next week we will start the quilting.
Things to bring: painting you want to quilt
any fabric for the backing (it won't show)
Cotton thread (YLI variegated, Superior King Tut, Sulky Blendables) Find a variegated that goes with your painting in darker shades. These are just suggestions.
Jeans or Sharp needle size 90 or 100
I will bring spray basting glue
Sewing machine with free motion foot
The paints will still be there so you can start (or finish) another painting and sew while things are drying if you wish.
On the last class we will put the quilted painting on the stretcher bars. I will bring my saw and the wood to make the frames. You will need a piece of plain canvas at least 3" bigger than the painting.
