Next up, I made this little art quilt, using torn strips of Cherrywood fabric which I wove, before adding the flower in the corner.
Next, I tried my hand at painting fusible web. I'd seen this technique on Quilting Arts TV. I left the paper on the fusible web, painted the web side with acrylic paints, let it dry, and then turned it paint side down onto fabric. After ironing it down, I pulled off the paper. I have a ton of Lite Steam-A-Seam (8.5 x 11 inch sheets) leftover from teaching at Paducah a couple of years ago, so I think I'll be using this technique a lot! Here are the painted pieces I worked on today.
These two pictures are actually the same piece. After it (pic no. 1) dried, I add the blue dots, then stamped on some words, added some swirly lines at the bottom, and layered it with batting and backing. It has not been quilted yet.
I also did two more painted fusible web pieces. I'll post them tomorrow. Hope you had a great Monday. Don't forget, tonight at midnight is the deadline to respond to a post to be eligible to win the fall fabrics and a signed copy of my book, Fabric Photo Play.
