Fabric Painting

Today was a super productive day, first I did the machine quilting for the Free Motion Quilting Challenge and this afternoon I had a play with my fabric paints.

Here are the results:
Sponged with salt

Not really sure if I like the sponged ones but am delighted with the scrunched ones.

These are all made using acrylic paints

Free Motion Quilting challenge - January

Today I finally made it back into the sewing room and it felt really good.  Oh how I have missed my sewing machine!
Today I did the first lesson from the Free Motion Quilting Challenge (see sidebar).

Hmm still need a bit of practice especially getting the leaves to look more random and not having them all facing the same way!

Really enjoyed seeing everyone elses work and it was great to see so many encouraging comments.

Quilters are such a nice bunch!

Tomorrow the ANZA Quilters are meeting again.  Yippee!

Happy Quilting!
