Quilting Arts

Paint And Dye

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
One key element of quilt design is fabric. Learn to create your own fabrics with paints and dyes for truly one-of-a-kind patterns. First, Marcia Derse begins with techniques for painting fabrics with silk screening paints. Hand painting fabric creates intimate marks and layers of color. Then, we move to unique postcards with Marlene Glickman. They feature dyed sheers, silks, and collaged fabrics. Finally, we move to another method of fabric manipulation with Michele Muska and machine needle felting. She creates felted trees of roving, yarn, and wool onto a premade red tree skirt.
