Default Quilt first, paint later!

Sometimes I just like to add a little pizzazz to a quilt with a touch of paint. Since I am not an artist, I need to have lines to follow. I quilted this first, and then added 5 shades of pink to the rose.

Here is a picture of the whole quilt. It's about 40 inches square.
