Perfect Pup Portraits with Kerry!

Paint-by-Number quilts are made using a freezer paper technique to create complex designs and then finished with turned edge machine appliqué. This process makes it easy to follow an intricate pattern with great results! Kerry Foster literally wrote the book on Paint-by-Number quilts which contains the instructions for four different wild animal designs and she continues to make new and fun patterns of pets and other animals. Kerry is passionate about this technique and she is excited to teach you all about it!

In this class, Kerry shares her signature style with you and talks you through every single step of the process. Kerry shows you how to follow her Paint-by-Number patterns that are helpfully laid out with color keys and diagrams. She also takes out all the guesswork in fabric choice so that you can sew animal portraits with sophisticated areas of light and shadow. It’s easier than you might think - put it all together without matching points and there’s no sewing until you quilt!
