I stayed close to home again today, sadly missing out on a gathering of my quilting friends. Looking on the bright side, I did spend more time working on adding color and fused shapes to my Spring Quilt. I found a great handpainted yellow with orange and will be enhancing some of those flower shapes with this fabric. I tried using pastel in addition to fabric ink, markers, and paint, and I was happy with the result. The colors can be built up gradually and blended, just like on paper. Has anyone else used artist's pastel on a quilt and did you use a fixative?
There will be more green leaf shapes across the bottom, stronger orange flower shapes and possibly the addition of some other colors (blue I'm thinking). We'll see where this takes me, but I'm certainly having fun.
