I pulled out my fabric paints today for the first time in ages. I want to make a wonky log cabin with only my own hand-painted fabric, so I painted a few pieces to add to my stash.
I mainly use Setacolor transparent paints by Pebeo, but today I also used Sky Blue by Jaquard. Both brands have a lot of pigment and make beautiful colors and hardly change the hand of the fabric at all.
I like the texture made by letting the fabric dry while it's a little wrinkly. Here it is still wet.
Here's my pile of hand-painted fabric, which goes back about 20 years.
In other studio happenings, I finally started quilting the Jelly Roll 1600 that I pieced almost a year ago in Sedona. I figured I'd better get it done before we go down again at the end of this month, because I'll be piecing another one while I'm there. It's become a ritual to make one every time we go down.
Have a colorful day
