“The Gift,” in progress

“The Gift” ready for thread
This is a new piece I am calling “The Gift.” It is based on this photo of a red maple leaf that I took this fall on one of my morning walks:


This is a wholecloth painted quilt; it started out as white fabric, and I am using my favorite acrylic paint, ProChemical & Dye’s Transparent Textile Paint, to paint it. Here are some photos of the painting in progress:






Next comes the thread!

  1. Wow, Susan!! This is spectacular!! Are the various shades of red just different "layers" of the transparent paint? It's so beautiful! Sure would like to take a class from you!
