This is the second quilt I made inspired by my precious paintbox. I firstly painted the box using oil pastel with watercolour washes and then the painting was scanned and digitally printed onto cotton fabric using fibre reactive dyes. I rarely clean the mixing palette, preferring to let my favourite colours flow from one painting session to the next – my free motion machine quilting follows the contours of the stains and spills on the wood of the box as well as the patches of colour in the half pans and those left in the china mixing palette. It was a joyous piece to work on!
