Painted Fabric Mini Quilt

Last teacher present coming up. And I think this is my favourite. Do you remember the fabric that Venetia 'painted' a while back with the watered down acrylics? (back here)

Here it is now in a mini quilt:

Venetia had to do just a little bit more emergency fabric painting for the binding when I realised we didn't have enough and we couldn't find any other fabric we liked for it.

We made it in the same kind of way as my Sunshine Quilt, and Venetia sewed on almost all the 'rays'. We started to get a little tight on time so I had to do the last couple, then add more quilting lines and the heart (just zigzagged on) with the writing.

We were both really pleased with how it turned out. And using home painted fabric is definitely something I'd like to do more of now.

Off to finish our book now, thanks very much for other reading recommendations earlier in the week.



  1. Another wonderful homemade gift. You know, crafting is from the heart, too, and I hope that all the lucky recipients know that. :)

  2. You did it again, it is beautiful! What lucky teachers.

  3. Oh that's lovely - and extra special for using the hand dyed fabric - lucky teacher!

  4. You really need to adopt me. I can't begin to imagine how much fun it would be to grow up in your house. What a lovely gift for a teacher.


Please post a comment, I love to hear from you!
