    A little more on the topic of painting quilts....

    Here is a picture of a placemat that I quilted first, and then painted. I used two different colors of paint, and as you can see, it doesn't leak through to the back.

    What brand of paint do you use? I assume the gold is the paint? It looks like fabric. Wonderful job.

    Yes, how did you do it? It doesn't look painted. I guess "how did you do it" is rather redundant but I would like more info please.

    I would also be interested in a tutorial that you can post on this site.

    What fun!! I used to do a lot of oil painting, but never thought too much about fabric painting. Must look into this. I, too, would love it if you did a tutorial on this..what kind of paint, preparation, etc. Thanks for the post.

    beautiful work!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
