But this time I have to start a new quilt with the idea of it being painted. It's been rolling around in the back of my mind for weeks. So today since I was spending this sweltering day inside in my beautiful AC, I said to myself, "Just do it!". I went through some fabric that I had parfait dyed a couple of years ago. I had really liked it but didn't know what to do with it. I wanted something strong with some interest that would hold up to being over-painted.
I used a very simple block made up of three rectangles. I cut out stacks of fabric 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" and played with the colors. It went together 1, 2, 3. So easy and fast, but I like it. I know that the colors are not for the faint of heart, says she who just had her guest bathroom painted navy blue and is loving it. And remember that this will be painted over after the quilting. I'm not sure what that color will be, maybe a very light blue or green.
I hope to start the quilting tomorrow. Stay tuned.
