Mouse in a tree is done, just to sew the binding down. I lightened the background tree with a fabric crayon as they seemed to dark and chopped up some yarn fibers and quilted them down to look like leaves.
Since I'm eventually making this into a digital pattern for sale, it's small - 8.5 x 11
The next one will be enlarged to see how that works.
Here's another in the works - how can I go wrong with those to die for fabrics!
Speaking of fabric, the lovely Lauren gave me more fabric last week and there are some weird shiny polyester plasticky stuff that is interesting.
I need to experiment on it to see how it takes quilting, paint ect. I doubt paint will absorb at all.
What would you do with something like this? It's sort of mirror - like.
And last but not least I finished quilting this ski scene with a purple sky
This pattern is already made and for sale on craftsy already. I have a request by someone for it.
When I quilt raw edge appliqué on the sweet sixteen, the needle is shattering the edge of the fabric.
Some possible fixes?
See if they have a thinner needle but then I don't want to change needles every time I switch from raw to non.
I use pellon 805 because it has less glue giving a better feel but maybe more fusible glue would hold it .
Any thoughts or suggestions ?
Thank you for your help!
