Painting Day

Today was painting day in our small RAFA group.   We started with gelatin prints from last month or any fabric that we had quilted with a design to play with today.   It was "paintstick" day today.    I started with a round circle of green - coppery mess.   It didn't look like anything but the color of fall leaves.   So I used Sulky 12 wt. thread and quilted leaves all through the design.   After highlighting a few of the leaves, this is what it looked like!

I still wasn't very happy with it, so I decided to use some blue on the background to see if it would make the leaves pop!

Ah............much better.    I call it leaves swirling on the pond - but I don't think it is done yet!
