Today's Parking Lot Painted Shibori is brought to you by the letters F for Fuchsia #49, Ultramarine Blue #12, and Violet #29, which are all Pebeo Setacolor transparent fabric paints. Each piece is white on white cotton that's either a stripe or dot and they are two yards in length so that I can create a garment. More to come later as I progress and I hope that you enjoy my journey.
I have been busy this past week created tunics. Some I had cut out a while back and other were just on the spur of the moment. All are one size fits most and the lengths go from the hips to the knees. Most of the fabrics were gifted to me by Lorain Little of Chicago Needles and Threads Quilters Guild, Juni Nelson, and Lynnde White, to whom I am very grateful.

This is a flash from my past. When I started quilting I focused on bed quilts and then I started on art quilts with the use of African and Afrocentric prints. A sister/friend got in touch with me last week and once business was taken care of she told me she had gotten the piece she bought from me in the late 90s framed. I asked her to please send me a picture and here it is. Thank you so very much Brenda Hampton for your friendship and support.
My #1 grandson, my only grandson graduated from high school and will be off to college this fall, so Nana offered to create a quilt for him. Once I asked what where is favorite colors (blue, green, and red) I chose what I had in my stash and we are all pleased with my choices. He even said that a pillow sham would be nice and do it was done.
Here is an update on my painted shibori process. The piece below were done of the smaller piece of PVC. You can see the difference in sizes from my photo below.
I re-painted several piece on the larger piece of PVC and you can see them wrapped on the photo above and the results below. This has bee a most enlightening experiences and I look forward to what I create with these fabrics.
This is the only piece that I batiked and I do have more in the works.
