Linda's unique painted fabric

My friend Linda P. showed us some of her gorgeous painted fabric yesterday at Sew Day. It looked so soft on both sides that I thought it was dyed, not painted.

She got the unique effect by laying the cotton fabric over old towels and then painting it. On some of the pieces, such as the tangerine one on the left, below, you can see the dots from the towel texture. She used Setacolor transparent fabric paints by Pebeo. I love it!

Linda also brought this wonky log cabin for show and tell. She painted some of these fabrics, also, including the blue with the salt pattern in the center. (That's binding that needs to be sewn down around the edges.) Gorgeous colors.

Have a colorful day
