Magic Tea Tree




Here is the latest quilt... this one is on a large panel of Kona cotton fabric. After ordering some 'Rub-a-Dub' laundry markers by Sharpie - I felt compelled to use them :) They are SO much better than the 'Tee Juice' ones... the black line is darker and a little thicker.

Anyway, I did paint a section at the top yesterday and hope to do more today. It's hard to paint in sections but I don't have a table large enough to lay the piece out. I'm used to painting at an easel or table where the whole composition is there to be worked on 'at the same time'... this is a totally different story! Since I don't use an airbrush, I can't really hang it up and paint. But, it'll work itself out. Besides, I love a challenge :)

Love your quiltwork here. Love the swallows and dragonflies and the two seated ladies are very elegant enjoying a cuppa tea.
Nice to meet you, Brenda, and thanks for visiting chez moi :o)
