I am having a great weekend of playing in my studio!! I know I have plenty of UFO's to work on ......but , sometimes it is fun to step away from all that and do something fast and different. My UFO's aren't going anywhere...they will be there tomorrow :O) Now, onto what I have been playing with. I love Neocolor wax pastels. They are a lot of fun to play with on paper and/or fabric. I drew a picture, then laid muslin on top, and drew on the muslin with the wax pastels. Then you add water with a paint brush...presto..you have a water colored fabric painting!! Super fun.!!! Then I pressed it with a very hot iron. Take it to your sewing machine and quilt away. I used black thread on all these pieces to give the cartoon like feel.
I will be teaching the quiltie class again tomorrow. This is what they will be working on. I am taking them way out of the quilt comfort zone :O) (wish me luck!!) This project will be a great way to practice their machine quilting as well. I always look forward to showing students how to do things a little different than the norm.
