I figured you have gazed upon my mighty Mt Fuji creation long enough and are in need of a new unbelievable sight. Well, peoples, here it is before you. Behold! Shield your eyes from the beauty.
First, while at Santa CAAWS on Sunday someone brought in a dog bed as a donation. Frank took it out of his truck since he had to go to work. I was going to bring it to the shelter Today. however, it has been appropriated by all the bassets. It has been in constant use despite the fact it is really too small for any of them. I decided to leave it for a while. It may just become a permanent part of the decor.
Here is one of the leaves I monoprinted. I guess it is actually a monotype since the leaves kept sticking to the previous fabric and each one is unique.
I dropped the feed dogs and went at it. The new machine needs one of those tables. I know you an get one made, if anyone knows what the name of the place is, I'd appreciate it.
Here is the back side, almost as cool as the front.
I adhered some fusible batting Tracy gave me. It gave the fabric the stability to handle the freemotion work.
Smile for your close up!
This is sooooo cool. Carol of Quilted Fabric Art has done a series of white prints on darker fabric. I thought black was the way to go, until I saw hers. WOW!
Funny, both of us cut one fabric set too small for the book we wanted to cover. Are we not twins, or what?
Meanwhile, I loaded this baby up on the longarm and quilted it quickly. I just did a random squiggly lines and switchbacks. Just something that didn't nee a lot of precision since the quilt itself is visual heavy.
If that is a word! You understand what I mean.
This is the piece of fabric that did fit the notebook. Still not sure why the other one didn't fit, I must have measured incorrectly......as I am known to do sometimes. I need to find a slightly smaller book.
This is so cool.
And here is the other side. Either one can be the front. I kinda like this one for the cover.
My Fiber Group will be equally impressed. And more so, they will be impressed that i actually did the challenge........next year.
Next time I will do a white print. Of course, you know i can't let Carol do ALL the cool stuff!
