Batting, fabric and threads oh my!!!!
This week I was able to finish this little Christmas wall hanging. Let just say that the bow is not doing it for me. I might try some tulle bow. I will get back to you :)
I did the quilting with my walking foot using the book "Walking foot Quilting Design" by Melissa Martinget. It is full of great idea!!!! I used a variation of her design called Burst.
This week I once again had a bit of fun with my marbled fabrics and added a block to the previous one.
Water marbling is quite an experience.....and it can be very frustrating because a million things can go wrong. Some days you love what you created and some days you hate everything. Hopefully with time I will get more that I like and less frustrations.
I also started quilting Theodore the tiger quilt. Those are the threads that I pulled.
So many yummy colors.
And finally, I have to test all those batting and do a video for one of my sponsor :) I will play with those and see how they react. Never tried fusible before. I also want to pre shrink them and see if there is a lot of difference.
Should be fun.
And a little update on the splash of color QAL. Still sewing :)
