Painted Quilts

based on the exhibition, Art in Craft Media 2021

Learn wonderful watercolor techniques based on the artwork Wearing My Heart on Your Sleeve.


  • Watercolor Paper
  • Sharpie or marker
  • Watercolor Paints
  • Paint Brush

Here is a project for anyone from beginners to experts. Start with looking at the artwork Wearing my Heart on Your Sleeve.


  1. Start with your shape. You don’t have to follow the same shape as WMHoYS. A rectangle, square, or even a triangle works too.
  2. Then fill in your shape. Make smaller rectangles, squares, half-circles, even an eye!
  3. Now it’s time to fill in your quilt shape, get your watercolor set, and fill in those smaller shapes.
