CREATE workshop: "Dreaming In Canvas: A Painted Quilt"

Our first workshop at the CREATE! Cloth Paper Scissors retreat in Chicago was an overwhelming success!  Our fabulous students created 2 canvases that were truly breath-taking, and transformed sections from both into beautiful quilts fused to black felt.  Please take a look:
Part of the group works on the underlayment of the painting

Here is the second painting.
Groups switched back and forth between the two canvases!

Close to finished!

The second canvas is almost finished!

Each canvas was divided so every student got a section from both.

Pieces were cut and assembled onto felt, then fused. 
The fused designs were machine-quilted with our beautiful Bernina 440 QE machines!

Students hard at work on their creations.
Music playing, and we had a great time together.

Here are my 2 quilts, assembled and quilted in the afternoon.

Here are most of the students, holding their finished quilts!
