Painted Fabric and Giveaway

I’m excited to announce that next week I’ll be posting the Photograph and Fiber pieces. There is a little something for everyone – great ideas and, I think, they’re very inspiring.

I’ll be showing some of the fabrics I’ve been painting lately in futures posts but for now, here is the most recent sky painting video…

I’m happy so many of you entered for a chance to win a piece of hand painted fabric. And the Giveaway/Sweepstakes winners are –

Lynne K.

Chris W.

Christine B.

Naomi M.

Joy Q.

Please email your mailing info to me and I will mail the fabric ASAP.

If you make anything with the fabric I hope you will share photos, I’d love to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.

Looking Up

I’m from a family of sky watchers. My parents lived just up the hill from where we live and my mom would often phone in the evenings, all she’d say was “sky alert!.” I would know that meant go upstairs and look out. My folks are gone but rarely do we miss a morning or evening of looking out and up. Here are a few of those skies…

That may be why I love painting sky fabric so much, that and wanting special skies for my landscapes quilts. I can’t make much art yet but I was able to paint a mini sky fabric and make the how-to video (see below).

Fabric Painting a Fluorescent Sky was so much fun and easy, requiring minimal supplies and materials.

Have you painted sky fabric to use in your art?

Below is my latest painted sky fabric. I’m editing the How-to paint this sky fabric video now and should post it next week. The hill/mountain pieces are only being auditioned here (not sewn or fused yet), and on the right the pieces have been darkened in Photoshopped.

Which landscape do you prefer?

I hope you will follow along, and remember there will be another giveaway in February.

Stay safe and well.

Painted Fabric Giveaways

I was hoping to share a new fabric painting video but just as I turned on my overhead lights to video the bulbs sizzled out and I had to leave the studio because of the noxious fumes. So here’s an oldie but, I think, a goodie. Read details below for fabric giveaway/sweepstakes.

I plan to have a giveaway each month so if you’d like to get notifications for the giveaways, and other news, simply subscribe to my blog.

Sky Over Oceanscape has my hand painted sky and water fabrics but has already been stitched into a mini landscape quilt top. The grassy border fabric is commercial.

I think it would be a good piece for someone looking to hand or machine quilt a small (22″ x 16 1/2″) but unique project. The second giveaway is a 42″ x 18″ piece of hand painted fabric I titled Woods. I usually paint on a fine, tightly woven fabric (think batik) but this piece was painted on a fabric closer to a quilter’s cotton. There are many ways a piece like this could be used – Tree trunks, leaves, ground, grass, even flowers.

Detail

Sweepstakes/giveaway begins January 13, 2021 and ends January 19, 2021.

To enter: You must live in the US only (no international entries). One entry per person. NOTE: If your name is drawn as the first winner it will be removed for the second drawing. Leave a comment below that you would like to win the Sky Over Oceanscape either/or the Woods fabric and include your first and last name (or last initial).

On Jan 20, 2021 I’ll use a random drawer and post the winners on my blog. Winners will email me their mailing information and I will mail the landscape and fabric pieces ASAP. If I don’t hear from the winner within a week of drawing date, I will run another random draw. Good luck!

Be safe and well.
