But it’s the wrong color.

As Marnie and I have been working on her guitar quilt, she found the perfect fabric for the string holder…..

….but it was too bright and white!!!


We pulled out a couple of fabric markers…..

….and added some color.

Now it is the PERFECT color for the quilt……

In the past, I have painted a particular fabric to make it fit into the design…

….and am definitely known for grabbing my sea sponge and adding color or emphasis where needed!

  1. I have never tried painting, but I often reverse a piece of fabric if it helps fit the pattern. This usually happens with a neutral that isn’t quite neutral enough for me! I’ll have to try painting some time.
