This is a fun class that produces stunning results even if you’ve never worked with acrylic paints. Combine painting with acrylics and easy quilting with Katie Pasquini Masopust. With her expert guidance, choose a color scheme and make three different paintings by layering paints and fabrics. Then, use Katie’s method to cut the canvases apart and sew them together to create a complex composition. Her technique lends itself well to geometric designs, still lifes, and landscapes. Next, layer your project with batting and backing, and quilt it as you prefer. Katie demonstrates how the final piece may be stretched onto a frame and hung. If you prefer to use the stitched canvas in other ways, she also gives instructions on how to cover books or calendars for personalized gift giving and even how to make her six-minute zippered bag!

    What a fun inspiring class from one of the best teachers I have known. Took a class in person from Katie many years ago at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. Loved that class and have really enjoyed watching this one. I look forward to watching it again and following along with the lessons. Thanks Katie - WONDERFUL!!! Also I have most of your books.

    Katie may be the best teacher I have seen yet. Her style is incredible and her easy going personality makes you feel so comfortable, inspired and capable. Thanks so much for a wonderful class. I'm thinking of trying this technique with cotton fabric. Wish me luck.

    Really good class with step by step instructions that break down the process into manageable parts. Teacher really knows her stuff and has inspired me to give this a try. Totally unfamiliar painting supply terms ( I am, after all, a quilter) and techniques were well explained. I can see many possibilities for this technique. Well taught.
  4. Sharon Lily Selvey-willar


    As an art quilter I am always looking to expand my range of materials. This is a fabulous way to do this, and I can't wait to get started. My head is bursting with the possibilities. Thank you Katie for sharing your technique and adding yet another option to express myself. Highly recommended.

    Awesome! Can't wait to try it. Katie is so good at explaining every detail.
