The painted quilt
If before or after the quilting, the process with colour onto fabrics, is an extremely interesting aspect for surface designs. We start by giving our fabrics with acryl- or fabric colour, a primary colour in a very easy way. Those individual pieces are already interesting by themselves, but can also be changed by printing or designing afterwards. Other parts will be stitched into patterns. After this step, Isabelle will show you examples, which colours are working best for which effect. We work with: Paintsticks, with discharged paste and Decolourantpaste, with acryl paint and fabric paint. This way, you can make your quilt afterwards more interesting. You can also choose this kind of markmaking right from the beginning. You don’t need any previous knowledge of colouring, just the motivation to arrange colours. You will need basic knowledge of free motion stiching.
