Thank you all! I reached my goal of 150 followers before March 31st. To celebrate I am going to have another giveaway because you guys are just the best!
First let me tell you a little bit about my mini pieces of art below. I had small bits and scraps of fabric left over, after sewing up several items from the Sweet Divinity fabric. I couldn't bear to part with it, so I decided to use a neat technique designed specifically for these little pieces.
To start, I ironed on some fusing to one side of the Timtex. I chose this as it is quite firm and I wanted the piece to be sturdy. Then I cut up all my bits of fabric into even smaller pieces. Once this was done, I placed them on the Timtex in a fun pattern. The first quilt I let the timtex show through, and the second one I overlapped all the pieces.
Apply heat to fuse them and you can be done. I wanted to add a little extra so I got out my shiva paintstiks and stencils and played. After curing for 24 hours I heat set it. I fused on a backing, did some stitching and my little quilts are complete.
Onto my giveaway. I have 5 fat quarters to give to one lucky fabric lover. Here is what you have to do:
1. Leave me a comment telling me what type of embellishing you want to learn about.
2. Blog about this and it counts for 2, so leave me two comments.
3. If you get a new follower to join, tell me their name and leave 3 comments.
I will make the draw on March 31st. Good luck!
