I started with a piece of white cotton fabric with a tight weave so that it is easy to paint.
I painted loose flowers in light purple, let them dry and then heat set the paint. I did the same for the dark purple flowers and the turquoise flowers
I let that paint dry and then heat set. Heat setting between layers keeps the colors from mixing together when I want them to stay separate.
I colored in the open areas with Derwent Inktense pencils and activated it with textile medium. I left the light purple flowers white. I let that dry and then heat set again.
When I was happy with the arrangement I used a fabric pen to write words on the stenciled side of the quilt.
I free motion stitched, with a blue thread that matched the Metamica paint, around the words.
This quilt still needs a name. If you have a suggestion you could leave me a note in the comments.
After I decide how I want to hang this quilt and finish that portion this beauty will be for sale.
Have a creative weekend,
