Adding Pieced Borders to Hand Painted Panel


Hand painted center square with Pieced Block Border

It took getting together with my sister for some days of sewing to get the pieced blocks sewn around this painted fabric. The center block, I painted with fibre reactive dyes which leaves the fabric soft and washable.  The pieced blocks were made this winter in Kim Schrader Fauth's  ABCD Quilt workshop. I would like to recommend this workshop highly as in no time at all we had created 32 pieced blocks. Check out Kim's website here:  ABCD Quilting Website 

With the joint effort of both my sister and I, the border design and sewing was soon complete. For quite sometime, I have wanted to try my hand painted fabric with pieced borders. What do you think of the results?
