quilt camp.

Day one of camp watch-a-patcher.

fun. fun. fun.

My teacher: Melody Crust.
I was hoping to learn something about painting on fabric
and.....
I DID!
Here's a little painting on dry fabric.

Splotches of paint on wet fabric.


Lines.


Here's a little resist practice.
I cut little squares of freezer paper and ironed them on
before painting.

I just goofed around with little pieces of fabric.
I felt a little bit like I was in Kindergarten.

;)



Here are the paints we used.
I think I'll go buy some more!!

3 more days of quilt day camping!
3 more days of instruction!
3 more days of heaven!

  3. I sure wish you would share some of those techniques - I love the last one particularly! I've thought about painting on fabric, back when I was making little girl clothes - but it might be interesting to work some into quilts, too, if they are colorfast! Tell us more about what you learned, please!
