Free Motion Friday - Stitching on Paint Block 4

I know I've said this a few times before this week, but I LOVE stitching on paint!  For this block I stitched 1/8 inch in from the edge of the pink  Then I went back and did a zigzag down the middle.  I love the texture it creates!

It's a little easier to see the zigzag on the back.

Here's the back with the gold stitching added!  I am in love with how it turned out!

I decided since this area of paint on the gold was so big to divide it into a bunch of smaller areas.  I continued the zigzag theme here.  This is also one of the few places where the thread I used was lighter than the paint.  I think it makes this shape glow.  I chose to do this because the fabric right next door was almost the same color and I wanted a bigger differentiation between them.  I am pleased with the results.

Here's the finished block.  This picture is a tad yellow, but I love this block.  I love the batik with the pink squares.  It's so much fun to see them start out big and then get smaller.  I have fussy cut so many pieces out of this batik.  The other day I found more when I was out of town and bought another yard.  It's a go to favorite fabric for me.

  1. Interesting technique! I've done some stamping with that paint, but have never tried quilting directly on the painted portions. Thanks for sharing!
