This weekend, my ebay group is doing an online retreat.
This retreat is called little quilts, so I made some stitcheries that I can make into little quilts.
I also whipped up a quick mini pieced quilt, as well. Tomorrow I will do some big stitch on it and then bind it, then you can see it.
This piece is from Red Brolly. Bronwyn is offering these designs as a freebie. I did not do the first one, but I am doing this one, as well as another, that I think will make nice mini quilts, on their own.
My plan is to paint this one, inside of the stitches. I want to use acrylics, that are watered down into a watercolor consistency. That way I get the water color look, but the heat set properties of acrylic.
The think that worries me is, what if I mess it up. I love the stitchery and do not want to ruin it by experimenting. So, I decided to make a small piece with one of Tiffany's designs, that I can practice on. If I don't mess it up, I can make this into a little pillow. The material I use for the backings is, moda tea stained. I love using it when I need a plain light background and it works great with the light box.
