Painted Quilts
See how you can quilt a design onto fabric and use fabric paint to colour it in. You choose the design, quilt it and colour it in with fabric felt pens and fabric paint. Depending on your quilting skills as to how intricate you quilt - the green and black photo is very intricate whereas the white photo is more simple doodle style quilting.
