I recently hung a quilt in my kitchen area.
Just a GENTLE reminder.
When MOM cooks you dinner...
she wants you to EAT it!
Normally it's a GENTLE reminder.
Once in a while I need to add
VOLUME and an exclamation point!!!
I had LOTS of fun making this quilt.
It began with an old white sheet.
Here are my tools:
*spray bottle with water
*acrylic paint (cheap paint from walmart)
*plastic bag under the fabric to protect table.
*paint palette (an old take home container)
*and the fabric
Painting fabric is easy.
For LESS defined lines
the fabric needs to be wet.
I Put some paint on my brush....
And took the PLUNGE!
The sea foam sponge adds some texture.
Here's my work area.....
Outside on the patio.
After the fabric dried
I added silverware and letters with iron-on fabric adhesive
some big stitches by hand
The beads were collected
off of one of my older girls blouses
she was giving away!
the value of GIVEaways!!!
I bet YOU have some ideas about
GENTLE reminders at your house too.
What would YOU make??
What would YOU say???
This is my 1,000th post!
That's a LOT of talking.
That's LOT of quilting.
A LOT of listening by YOU!
Thank you dear friends!
