Painted fabric by Melody Crust

Paint Glorious Paint

One day workshop
All skill levels - Technique

The joy of painting onto fabric is that there are so many possibilities and so few rules. This is a time to set free your imagination, pick up brush and play. Apply the same techniques you use in creating the quilt top,-visual trial and error. Play with fabric paints to enrich your fabrics before you begin sewing-or at any time during the process. Use paints to add new designs or dimension to portions of your quilts, making the fabrics uniquely your own. The choices are yours and the magic is waiting to happen. (Quilt Toppings; Fun and Fanciful Embellishment Techniques).
