I am testing out one of my quilting designs, and decided to pull out my pigment paint to color this quilt. Here are a series of pictures:
Quilted sample featuring my design in the center:
Starting adding color. Notice how vibrant the color becomes when I add aloe vera gel to the pigment color?
Now working on the background behind my design:

Back to coloring! Carla
Beautiful, Carla. I wish I had a computerized module for my longarm machine.
That is beautiful!
That is really cool Carla. It reminds me that I bought a kit several years ago at MQS from Irena Bluhm and I’ve yet taken time to try it out. Maybe one day when I get caught up with customer quilts I will. Lovely design too. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, I never thought of doing something like this. This is exciting.
I enjoyed this so much, your quilting is beautiful. And I’m interested learning more about your use of pigment paints. I’m unfamilar with them. I usually work from the opposite direction in art quilting, Seta silk paints or colored waterbased inks first, then the quilting. I so happy I found your blog, it is delightful.
Thank you for sharing your creative process – and for stimulating my own creative juices!
