A Rainbow of Raw Materials

The raw materials are done. I spent the weekend painting a quilting away. I have a whole rainbow of quilted fabrics and fabric paper. For one set, I quilted white fabric and then painted it with very watery acrylic and fabric paints. For the other set, I painted the fabric first and then quilted with metallic threads. I'm not sure exactly what I am going to do next, but I know that I need to get to work on my twelve by twelve piece. Shelter, very fitting for the last two months. I started one idea, but it just wasn't working. Now, I've got one week. I think I'm trying to hard and thinking I need something grand. Time to stop taking myself so seriously and enjoy the experience.

Nikki, your painted and quilted fabrics are beautiful! The small photos didn't do them justice, but when I clicked to the larger pix - WOW! These are really cool!

The fabric is gorgeous. Great job on the quilting, they have so much texture. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
