Can You See What I See

Sometimes a piece of hand dyed fabric just yells "don't cut me up".  This was one of those pieces so I stared at it until I found different flowers within the colors.  I started by inking the most dominate ones and then outlined them with thick, black thread.  Using Tsukineko ink to give shadows, help define them along with thread painting. Machine quilting and painting are two of my favorite things to do.

The class sample is now finished and I will be teaching it in a couple of weeks.  Hope the students enjoy this process as much as I do. Jan


  1. Oooooh, cool blog Auntie! I love this fabric you died. MAN! I'm about to start a PINK flowery quilt for Kayleigh Jo. Wish you lived next door! Have fun. I became one of your "followers" so hopefully it'll update me when you add stuff to your blog. VERY COOL! Love you much. Ang

  2. Hope you two wild girls have a great time with your new blog! And, making those gorgeous quilts. Jan, love your flowers on this one.....enjoy! pat
