    Thought I would try my hand at painting some fabric. It's a lot of work for one yard of fabric.

    Lovely and a lot of work, yes but now you have unique fabric. Were they stencils or drawn freehand?

    I love this kind of thing and sometimes do it. You did a great job! Did you make your own rubber stamp out of a potato or your own stencil? It's well worth the time! You have special fab no one else has and I love that part! Keep up the good work! People may want to buy it too! :-D :-D :-D :thumbup:

    Yes I did my avatar. Thank you for the compliment. I like doing that kind of quilt, not much into piecing.
