For our quilt local photos were contributed from the group and were printed on to fabric. Complimentary coloured log cabin blocks were constructed around each picture and a busy Saturday was spent putting together the blocks using a "quilt as you go" method. Thank you so much to everyone concerned.
Janet Leeper will be leading a session on October 19th at 7.30.
It's a workshop to make a new fabric (as if we don't have enough already!) to stitch or print on from found ephemera, little bits of cloth etc etc.
This is a fun and creative evening!!
If you'd like to come please bring the following:
Decide what colour/(s) you want your finished fabric to be.
Bring thin papers and fabrics eg tissue paper, paper napkins, paper towels, scrim, net, lace small pieces of calico/cotton pre dyed or coloured....(.you can do plain white if you want).
The fabric will be made from a variety of paper and fabrics used interchangeably. Quite small pieces can be used so it is a good way to use up those scraps you just cannot throw away.
You can always add slivers of thicker bits like felt, velvet or a thread, ribbon to add interest. Also to make the work personal the odd used postage stamp or part of a letter, map or ticket.
I once saw used a lovely label that was soaked off a wine bottle.
The only other things you need besides the statutory apron is a good quality plastic carrier bag to work on, a pair of scissors and a brush(I use a half inch decorators brush) to apply paste which I will supply.
Come back later to see photos of our penants for the Olympics ...
