This quilt came from a calendar picture I saw at a friend's house. It was my first real attempt at using paints. Each leaf was painted separately on a very light green dyed fabric and then added the veins and painted some more. The persimmon was painted on a very light yellow mottled dyed fabric. The background was a light off white fabric that I did some shading on. I then machine appliqed each piece to the background. For a first time using paints I thought it came out pretty good.
