Stamped Flower - quilt finished!



This little quilt is made from some of my hand dyed fabrics that I have stamped with my hand carved rubber stamps. Carving stamps can be addicting, and when I get my tools out and start working it can be hard to stop. Lumiere metallic paints were used, although for some reason the stamps wanted to keep most of the metallic, so the effect is quite different that I would get if I was to paint the same colors onto the fabric. After quilting, I added a few beads to spice it up, and then finished with a traditional binding and sleeve.
I have a few more that are ready for binding and embellishing, and many more that are ready for the quilting stage, which I may take with me to work on next week to work on between classes in Sisters, OR

Your quilt is lovely! I think that is so cool that you hand dye your own fabrics to make quilts of.
