Today is reveal day for the mini art quilt group Fiberactions.
The challenge - to use at least 10 colors.
Starting with white prepared for dying cloth I drew out my design using an air erasable marking pen.
Using Neocolor pastels and Seta Color fabric paints, color was added to the words, people, states and water.
When the quilting was finished the color was added to the border areas using fabric paints. I had a hard time getting good coverage over the threads. I really should have painted everything before quilting.
There is double batting in between the layers. The map and people looked cool puffed up, so I left them that way.
Shimmery fabric medium was used in the blue paint.
It looks neat up close but, you can't really see it in pictures.
This was a fun project to design and work on.
