On Mondays I spend the day with my local quilt group
A few of us decided to play with textile paints and create some surface design on commercial fabrics

The table is set.........we are ready to play
My aunt, Donna Irons, is here from Idaho
She is a traditional quilter and has never dabbled in surface design
Well.......she did today!
Maple Leaves by Donna Irons
Linda played with green and pink paint on these oak leaves
Anny Donna's Maple Leaves
She said, "This is so much fun!"
Oak Leaves by Linda
I played with light paint colors...on a very dark blue fabric
It was an experiment to see if the images would show up well enough on the dark fabric
Dark Blue Batik Fabric
Pearl White Checker Board Background
Gold & Green Birch Leaves
This is a piece I started in March...
I added a few more leaves today.
This is a great commercial background fabric...
Wish I had more of it.
This is the last piece I worked on today...
Kathi's two painted pieces
The rusted fabric takes the paint very well.
The results of our play day...
Flowering Cherry Tree Blizzard
This is what I saw when I pulled down the driveway tonight
