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
This process is totally addicting. I have 11 blocks fused and ready for stitching! Stay tuned.
I hope you get to quilt today!
