A Little Paint and a Little Applique Block 1

This year I joined Helen Godden's painted block of the month.  Check it out on her website!  I finished the first block and still had my paints out when I decided to play.  I designed an applique block but instead of appliqueing some of the shapes, I painted them with my Lumiere metallic acrylic paints.

Here's the painted layer

And I start adding applique.  

Appliques all on

The blanket stitching around the shapes complete.  

This process is totally addicting.  I have 11 blocks fused and ready for stitching!  Stay tuned.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Wow! I love this! What a great combination of mediums! REALLY looking forward to seeing the rest of your blocks.

  2. What a fun way to mix appliqué with painting. You are adventurous.
