Here is today's new piece and what fun it was to do! I began with white fabric which I painted using "Silks" paints and a bevy of unusual brushes. My goal was to get to know some of the different styles of paint brushes as I created. I really like this breezy yet bold color way and quilting the designs was a load of fun. I decided to go with sort of a scribbled look and like it best in the square stitched around the square. I used black thread in the black area, red violet in the red and pale yellow thread as well as contrasty red violet thread in the whiter area. All in all in was just a bunch of fun and I look forward to stitching more of the fabrics that I painted yesterday and this morning.
