Twas the night before Christmas

Well I had a go at painting the quilt piece I painted the fennel with a green acrylic wash then white markal for highlights and dark green for shadow. The rest had a wash of grey acrylic paint then some mauvey pink then pearlised white markal stick to give it a lift. I was pleased for a first attempt but it would be quite nerve wracking to have a go at a full size quilt which had taken hours, and the thought of attacking a new quilt with bleach fills me with dread, although the Kemshall` discharging on their quilts is exquisite so I shall try it out on a test piece.
