    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.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

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

    very pretty, I'd love to see the whole quilt done. please show us.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Hi Lynnie --- the whole quilt is pictured in an earlier post. It's only about 40 inches square, but you can get an idea of the "flavor".

    Looks like you know how to do shading. Job well done.

    What kind of paint do you use? Is the quilt washable with the paint on it?

    Well, yes and no. Washable --- yes, but.... there is a bit of stiffness to Lumiere paint that a lot of people don't care for in a quilt that will be on a bed. I use it a lot on the outside of placemats, shirts, and wall-hangings. I have not had any trouble with washing, and I don't heat set the paints. Check Dick Blick.com for lots of info about different paints. Or, when in doubt, you can always add a little fabric medium to the paint to make it permanent.
