I missed last months meeting due to a board meeting but Janice taught Thread Painting on water soluble stabilizer and gave us the word "Rejoice" to put into a quilt. Well, I don't see the point in doing it on stabilizer when you can do it directly on the fabric. But I did it anyways. After seeing Janice's and Karen's I can now see when this technique can come in handy. I forgot to take a picture of Grace's butterflies she made but when she gets it into a quilt, I hope to take a picture of it. I'm trying to remember to take my camera and use it so I will have pictures for my blog. Maybe it will be more interesting to more people.
|Barbara Sawyer did hers directly on the fabric.|
|Barbara Sindlinger made a little one (about 6" x 6")|
|Janice Minyard suspended hers in the center (open all the way through)|
|Karen Taber layered hers with chiffon and inserted free floating stars.|
|This is Sara Kelly's which she did not put into a quilt.|
|But Sara decided to cut up some blocks she had and make a new quilt out of them.|
|And here is mine. |
This wasn't the original orientation and I planned on having more beads on it but I guess this is the way it is going to stay. Have to change the sleeve on the back!
