    Have any of you tried handpainted fabric for your quilts if not have you considered it? Do you like using them? What is your favorite thing about it? What don't you like about using handpainted fabric in your quilt?

    The only thing I do NOT like about handpainted fabric is the price :roll: I will say that some I touched at a craft fair, was on the stiff side. Most of what I have seen and bought, had a very soft feel to them. :D :D :D

    i dye and paint most, if not all, of the fabric that i use in the quilts that i sell.

    most mass market fabric and patterns have copyright laws and now with ebay, etsy, and other online sales the fabric designers have been asking for part of the profits.

    its just best to avoid all of these problems by using your original fabric and your original patterns. the only works that are from patterns that are allowed to be sold are ones that are in public domain because they date before the copyright laws or the copyright has expired.

    the only thing i don't like about the process is the mess. i do all this work in my garage and the floor looks like a pollock painting.
