.....its painted


I didn't want to paint just for the sake of painting on a quilted surface. I wanted to use the same shape - mostly squares - that I had used in layering the sheers.
I used a stiff cardboard template, straight seta color fabric paints & a foam brush. I tried to just tickle the tops of the raised parts and was pleased with the results. A couple of the blocks are a little heavier on the paint than I would like.
I have no idea what to do now!! Is it finished? does it need something else?

I can see where you added the paint maggie, and I think it adds interest. Are you turning this fabric into a bag? I think that is what I read. I think it looks done, but only YOU know for sure!!

Stunning! I love love love love love orange. Hmmm does it need something else? NO nothing-->It only needs to be mailed to me...hahaha. I am going to copy it and make cushions for my couch, if that's ok? Please mail detailed instructions in a PDF with photographs yesterday, (lol--just kidding!) :0) Mel
