Samples for my new class

This week, I finished three samples for my new workshop, Wholecloth Painting. In September, I'll be teaching it to the Cotton Patch Quilters of Athens, Georgia. In this class, students will learn the basics of creating wholecloth painted quilts based on photos. Students will be able to pick from one of these three projects, and will work from line drawings and my photos to recreate the image on fabric.

The goal is to teach the techniques, so that students can go home after class and work from their own photos to create original work.

These pieces are all little (all smaller than 8x12") because I needed to whip them up fast. But I'd love to do them really big. Wouldn't they look fabulous hanging together as a big triptych?

Here are some larger photos of each:
