|The Diamond Lilly Block Re-Done my way! Diamond Lil's Tipsy Tea Party. You may be asking why I would do this particular quilt that is based on a traditional pattern? I do love traditional quilts, and I have a nice collection at my house. But I am always intrigued of how quilters can interpret a block in a new way, in their own style. It was part of a project that never came about, so I thought I would share my process for making the quilt with you.|
|The background fabric (commercial cotton) is fused onto black blended wool felt. This is a great project for scraps. I made this in one large square, and then cut it into 7x7 squares. One of the squares is actually pieced together.|
|Just roll out the Mistyfuse 12" onto the fabric and fuse by laying a Goddess Sheet over the top, to protect your iron. MF doesn't change the hand of the cloth and it is my choice for fusing everything.|
|Begin free motion machine quilting with circles over the entire piece. I use a 40 wt polyester thread in black in both the top and bobbin.|
|Press with a dry iron to flatten out the piece that has been quilted|
|Begin cutting the triangles with a rotary cutter and ruler. That is a Martelli cutting mat, that is one of the best tools that I have in my studio. |
that's it?! It stopped so abruptly... I was waiting for more :-). I will be back.ReplyDelete
The good demonstration is depicting that another fabulous master piece is in process.
Anyways we will be looking for you until its on air. :)
I love this tipsy tea party. And the way you're showing us how to do it. The techniques.ReplyDelete
