SECOND CLOTH FINISHED






Here are pics of my second cloth. I am still learning and still trying new things.
Karen is offering a new class starting early March and I think I will sign up. It is an extended class of this one and we will also be working on paper as she shows on her blog. that will be a new one for me.

the last pic, which should have been the first, is stretched on to a couple of pieces of cork then lightly sprayed with water. It dries overnight and you have a very nice smooth look. So far it has not damaged any of the fabrics I have worked with. I still think as a crazy quilter where you would never dream of touching water near your piece.

What a lovely piece Freda. I do like the touches of pink. You are beginning to think like an embroiderer when you are prepared to pin your work out and spray it.

Gorgeous, Freda!!!!! I considered taking the class too, but time constraints got in the way. It looks like I missed something very special.

It's gorgeous Freda! Ok. enough already. I'm signing up for her class!

I stitch my crazy quilt blocks stretched on a frame. I always lose some tautness as I stitch so when a block is finished, I will tighten it a little more and then steam it from below and let it dry overnight. I haven't had any problems yet. I learned this from Japanese embroidery...
