On QuiltingArtsTV show 906 there was a spot with Pokey interview someone from a quilt show who did group quilts on canvas. It's a great activity, and she showed some fun things to do with the cut up and divided quilt pieces. At the end of show Pokey said instructions would be on the web site, but I sure can't find them. Can you help? Thanks.
I can't find that project either, so I will bump it to the QA TV folks,

Have you found out anything about the collaborative painting project on show 906?? I didn't see anything else posted.
Hi tigerwolf55, I responded directly to mallow but I'm happy to share my response. Here goes:
We never received formal instructions but I’ve watched the
episode and it seems pretty straight forward.
Jamie Fingal, the featured artist, mentioned she uses a pre-primed
canvas about 56” x 8’ and acrylic paint. Participants work on the canvas
for an allotted period of time and then pass it along, building upon the layers
of previous participants—sometimes enhancing their work or even painting over
it. There is no need to wait for layers to dry before passing it on to a
After everyone has added color, that’s when Jamie recommends going
back and highlighting with white. After the white, add accents with
When the canvas is dry (or being very careful if it’s still wet),
cut the canvas in equal portions to give to each participant.
I think, quite frankly, the directions we were expecting were less
about the process of painting—Jamie has a free attitude about just going for
it!—and more about the project suggestions (apron, ATCs, book/screen).
I hope this helps and that you have an enjoyable painting
experience with your group!
This is a class that Leslie Tucker Jenison and I teach at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in the Fall - Painting with a Twist and Shout. We use primed canvas and acrylic paint. About 6-8 people per canvas. Each person never stays in the same place more than 5 minutes, therefore never leaving their style in one place. Hope this helps! it is a totally fun class!
Thanks so much for the input! It sounds like a blast!
