|Then I fused them to a piece of wool blended felt, which will be my foundation (or batting). I am trimming the edges from the back, using the felt as a guide and my ruler to cut a straight line.
|Now my background is ready for it's design. I think backgrounds are so important, when making a quilt.
|I am making the jar with a piece of lavender fabric int he shape of the jar with a sheer over it, to look like plastic. Both pieces have Mistyfuse on them.
|I actually pieced these strips. I haven't pieced anything in over a decade. I probably won't do it again. It reminded me of why this isn't for me. So, now several layers of pieced strips are placed on a Sizzix die that is a pair of scissors.
|I think that these look like spoons, so they will be fun to use for this. I am saving the negative side for another project.
|My art quilt is called "Cut to the Chase: One spoon to rule them all. Scissors for cutting, chasing the spoons round and round, and one spoon in the middle to eat the gelato in one sitting.
|Detail. And then I went home and ate some. realized that the chocolate chips are visible from the outside of the jar, so back to the sewing machine it went.
|And I also outlined the scissors and the spoon in thin strips of wool felt to high-light them.
|Super happy with the results. What's for Dinner? Talenti Gelato Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip! Hope to see you in Houston!
