Watercolor Roses

Watercolor Quilting, Roses

Good Morning, Quilters!

I was supposed to be dusting…

But then I started watching  Kateri Ewing’s-Watercolor Start Up Class from Craftsy (get 25%off with my affiliate link HERE)

Now I  have so many ideas I want to try!

I played with Nora’s Rose and Messy Spiral Roses

But what about the Perfect Pumpkin or Apples

Watercolor Quilting, RosesI love this–no UFOs, no binding…

What about YOU?

Have you ever stitched on paper?

We’d LOVE to hear!

  1. You were my inspiration to stitch on paper. I haven’t stopped since I received your book. You give us the license to try everything and anything. I stitched on paper while at the hospital this week with hubbys knee replacement surgery while most people in the waiting room were watching the tv. I couldn’t help my self, I had so much fun finding new inspiration around me in the flowers on the receptionist deck to a beautiful sweater I saw. It made the time fly by.

  2. No, but I still have my watercolors and your beautiful spiral roses have me salivating and maybe I will have to get those paints out from wherever they are hiding.

  3. I have not tried quilting, thread painting, or thread sketching on paper, but it would be a fun experiment. I think of thread (and fabric) as another painting media.

  4. No I haven’t stitched on paper except to try to introduce 12 teenagers to “control” their sewing machines. (What a hoot!) However, must say that I Love the sweet Hedgehog pincushion that appeared at bottom of your post. Now that’s also on my list of “to do”.

    Looking forward to seeing you at FS again.

  5. Yes I have stitched on paper, & “Wow” your water color roses are gorgeous! Makes me wan to try that! Did you stitch or paint first? I’m guessing stitch first.

  6. I took a class from Kathy McNeil a couple years ago at MQ. She uses Fabric Paint crayons and sells them on her website. Another friend uses PaintStiks to paint fabric.

  7. Oh, gasp and wow and that is so beautiful… you are a professional immediately!! Drool…Lori… Hire someone to dust. Don’t waste your talent-time on the mundane if you can help it. Grands are always looking for spending money, even if you have to “borrow” some. Mine live out of town but I let them know before they visit if a job is open when they get here. My first watercolor was back in 1978 and the subject was a pile of pumpkins on a wooden porch floor.. Fun ! (Hmmm, that might make a nice wall hanging now for Autumn.. paint and thread..)

  8. Appears like you used good paper…. sometimes you can moisten the paper before you paint. Tape down the sides leaving the corners untaped. then moisten with a brush. Blot with towel if it got too wet. Let dry..air or hairdryer. Then stitch.. gives variety of effects.

  9. I’m with you – the dusting can wait. Your work is lovely and creative. I hope you will have it framed.
