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?
