Wow, this is beautiful. I love the way you combined the pastel colors. You put alot of work and I know love into this quilt. I think it rates a purple ribbon.

Did you use the paints that come in tubes or the kind that comes in bottles that you brush on?

oigelcox by oigelcox 26 Jun 2012

I brushed on Jo Sonja acrylic gouche paint in tubes with fabric medium added to thin it down and heat set with my iron .It has been washed well colours have not faded. Joyce
