Gail’s Wild Sunflowers

I’m a big fan of Andrea Brokenshire.  I was fortunate to take a week long class with
 her last year in Schulenberg Texas.   This is the 2nd quilt I have completed using
her method of painting on silk charmeuse with a freezer paper pattern.  The original
photo was taken by our own Teresa Schlabach.   Pro Chem transparent textile paints
on silk charmeuse.  I hope to do more of these.  


  1. Hi Gail, I am SO PROUD of you! Your painting is lovely and the quilt is beautiful! Great job!

  2. Gail, this is so lovely! You are really quite the expert with paint. I am delighted for you, and this quilt is a wonderful addition to our WILD quilts!

  3. What a wonderful "Wild" quilt! I am always drawn to watercolor paintings and you have achieved that affect perfectly! Well done with the quilting too. It gives the different components the right texture.

  4. Great Quilt ! Looks like you and I had the same "Wild Flowers" in mind for our works of art :-D Love how you used so many different techniques... the painting on charmeuse silk is really effective ! ! !
