Paintbrush Studios and Aurifil Wholecloth Quilt Challenge

This pillow is a bit of a work in progress.


I had wondered about using a water soluble marking pen (not the kind that irons away). On Instagram, I mentioned in my Stories that I wondered if it would really work as advertised. I’m grateful that quilters replied with lots of advice to:

(1) not iron it under any circumstances and

(2) use a spray bottle to mist the fabric till the lines disappeared. (I’m not going to tell you exactly what my original plan was but it was going to require far more than a spray bottle. 🛁 🤦‍♀️🤣.)

This got two mists, but I think it needs a third to eliminate some of the more heavily marked spots where several lines crossed.



I also want to add a few more concentric circles. This one circle looks somewhat accidental, and I think it needs a bit more to say “HEY! We’re all about some circles here!” Cause we are. Circles and stripes. Circles and stripes. They’re quite the pair! 😉



So with that introduction, I’m excited to present my wholecloth quilt/pillow project using #painterspalettesolidsfrom @pbsfabrics and 28wt variegated @aurifilthread! There will be a few more #aurifilartisan challenges this year, and I’m excited to continue trying new things!
