Amazing painted quilts have been taking top prizes at regional and national shows. Paint brings a quilted landscape to life, but if you're afraid to take a brush to your art quilts, Annette Kennedy will remove the fear factor and walk you through fabric painting step by step. Annette uses two included projects to show you how to add visual depth to your own quilted images.
