Painting Fabric for my Quilt
This is the first sky fabric I painted for this new quilt. I used Pebeo Setacolor Translucent Fabric paint. After I mixed the colors I chose for the sky I thinned the paint with water (50/50) and applied it to pre- washed and ironed white cotton fabric. The colors I chose were light blues, peach, rose, mauve, violet and golden yellow. I wanted it to look like an early morning sky. I would cover this particular piece of fabric with white bridal tulle to lighten it which would give it a misty effect. Some times I need to paint four or five pieces until I get the one I want.
