I’ve done a bit of sewing again this week – mostly on that baby quilt. That lovely young lady is now over three weeks old. Have to get busy!
The next border is white with appliqued vines and purple flowers – 24 flowers to be exact – and over 260 silly little leaves! This is when I remember that I really DON’T like machine applique. I created a leaf template that I can trace inside, and will use three different greens. Also in the running are 120 petals for those flowers. This will take a while – but I’m very, very happy with it.
My applique ladies for
Paramjeet’s class didn’t progress very far last week – I have all the coloured bits on now – and yesterday stitched the first round of black lines. All the paper is off the back, so I can sandwich it and quilt in black on ALL the lines.
Last week at Paramjeet’s, we played with fabric dyes. Jo was the master chemist, in charge of colour mixing. Mad scientist, maybe??? We will have to be watching her once she get her own set – she may come out all colours of the rainbow along with the fabrics. These are the colour swatches before we did the dying –The dying process –And the finished fabrics – all washed and pressed.
I’m buying a set of dyes from Paramjeet – and will play with them in Norway . Jo and I went out and bought white fabric – I got 10 meters, so I’m all set to go!
