Quilting joins Inks and Paints

Greetings. I hope this post finds you all doing well.

I wanted to share with you one of my latest projects. Over on Facebook I met Sherry Harrison, she is an amazing quilter who has taken quilting to a new level. She is adding paints and inks to her whole cloth quilts with breathtaking results. Sherry being a smart business woman has made up kits so the rest of us can try her technique. You can see her website @ Sew Far Sew Good

Seeing her beautiful work, I had to try my hand at it and below is my piece at about the half way point. The main colors are added with Gelly Roll pens, the gold is a Sanford Gold Coat pen (from my scrapbooking supplies) each color is 3 layers thick, which seems to be where the ink starts to show its full color strength. I plan to change it up a bit with hand embroidery, beads and crystals. What else would you expect for a Crazy Quilter, right? So stay tuned to see the results.

Remember to click the picture to get up close and personal.

I know I have been lax in posting, but rest assured I have been quilting. I will have pictures to share with you soon of my Log Cabin quilt, and a Crown Royal quilt I am doing.

Have a Blessed day.
