School is back in but I am stil in summer mode. Last week I did manage to
complete three fabric postcards though.
This is my dad’s boat. I used Inktense Pencils to color in the picture.
Water is used to help the colors come to life but depending on the weave of
the fabric, the color may run into other colors too, as in this case.
It reminds me of a watercolor painting.
The same boat is used here too but I wanted to try out my Prismacolor
Pencils. Once the coloring is completed, a fabric medium is used to seal in
the colors. Using different mediums give an entirely different look to the same
Another boat-yes, it was a week for boats. Prismacolor pencils
and a fabric medium were used here too.
This is Bernice’s quilt. I love the big sqaures -what a great way to create a
quilt quickly and use up scraps too.
I love creatively pieced backs. It is a great way to use up all those extra blocks
that we sometimes have left over from the quilt top.
These are the 48 blocks that I paper pieced last week and that caused me so
many problems and puckers. I was surprised that it only took me 1/2 hour to
rip off all the paper on the backs of these squares.
The leftover scraps. I may attempt to make a quilt similiar to Kaffe Fassett’s.
He used a triangular shape but pieced it similar to a log cabin. I will include
pictures next week. I may try layering the strips on top of each other because
they are fairly slim. Wish me luck. I may have to use a stabilizer if any
puckering occurs again. As you can see, nothing goes to waste. And yes,
I am OCD sometimes.
See you next week.
