I have published a couple new YouTube videos. One is free-motion quilting a simple tree and the newest is a mini painted landscape (from previous post) that will be stitched in a later video or two.
If you take the time to watch them I truly appreciate it. If you enjoy them please comment, give them thumbs up and subscribe!

Fabric Painted Landscape in a Hoop
Quilting and Painting Away, Ann
I especially enjoyed the painted landscape video, with your tips for wetting the fabric and the paints. Those chip brushes are handy and tossing them is relatively guilt free. What do you use to suspend the cotton if you want to paint a square or rectangle? I think I’ll need to look for used hoops.
Thank you, Joanna. I have discovered that the cheaper the bristle brushes the more they seem to shed during painting so heads up on that (discovered that after I bought a box of 24, yikes)! This is a video that shows what I use for larger, square, and of rectangle shape painted pieces – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-ugbjMDMs In the old days I would just stapling the fabric to a soft pine picture type frame or stretcher bars. Looking for used hoops is a great idea!
