Quilt Art Workshop tries Velda Newman. . .

This month's quilt art workshop is a project "Lemon Study" from Velda Newman's book "A Workshop with Velda Newman, Adding Dimension to your quilt.  This will be the first time we will endeavor to venture into fabric painting.
Here is my color palette.
The pattern pieces were drawn onto freezer paper and will be placed on the backside of the fabric.  The lines are drawn to be transferred to the fabric for stitching reference.
Here is the background coupled with cheesecloth.  I am going to dye the cheesecloth and quilt it to the background fabric.  This will be my first time attempting this technique to create texture.  
Keep watching :)
