Another painted sample

This is the second piece I’ve painted this week as a sample for my Wholecloth Painting class. It is based on this photo:

I used the same photo as inspiration for this piece, which I made to demonstrate techniques in my Quilting Arts DVD, “Master Machine Quilting: Free-Motion Stitching and Thread Sketching.” It is made of fused fabric and thread sketched, then quilted:

I have one more sample for my workshop I need to paint, and then I can start stitching!


  1. That is just gorgeous Susan! I love the idea of wholecloth painting and I'm sure quilters will jump at the chance to take such an exciting class!

    Let's go quilt,

  2. I wish your flower paintings were made into puzzles, think about that market. I would sure buy them and I bet lots of other older people would.

  3. Wow, oh wow! Your eye for detail and floral art never cease to thrill me.

  4. I just love how it looks with the quilting over the painting.


  5. WOW is all I can say. I'm greatful for my eyes when I see your work....absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see it.

    I missed you at Market....I even ran looking for you...but it was another woman. Oops.


  6. Susan,

    I am so happy to see you are using your God given talents!!
    Your work is beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world!


I love it when you leave comments… Otherwise I feel like I'm just talking to myself! If you have time to write, please let me know what you think.
