Finally painting fabric

I finally got my rust dyed fabrics out to paint them for my toxic barrel quilt. So far I have only painted one piece. It is not an especially warm or sunny day so I think I may hold off on painting the others. The piece I painted is taking a long time to dry which of course means it dries lighter than you plan on. Right now I wonder what the backside looks like. Well at least I got started!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.

Thanks for reading. 


  1. It's going to be interesting to watch you put this together. Just wondering what type of paints you use. It's so dry here on the prairies that I have to fight paint drying too fast!

  2. The paints are setacolors. Although I have other paints as well. Wonder if I should try them!

  3. Looks like a good start. It would not have occurred to me to overpaint a rust piece. Shows how much tunnel vision I have!
