This awesome piece was in the background of a previous post but I wanted to show it up close. My friend SHARON made this beauty using watercolor wax crayons. What fun. She used real leaves as a pattern. The RAIN is a decorative stitch and was just the right touch to finish this off. Sharon gave our quilt guild a demo on this today. I BOUGHT them and look forward to trying them out.
And my friend MELANIE gave a demo on making purses from place mats! This is my favorite one. She made it for her Mom. The fabric is gathered on this one and has a gorgeous beaded trim sewn on the seam. Those handles......Curtain tiebacks!
SO as you can imagine I learned ALOT today..
- Besides the above mentioned we learned how to do invisible machine applique. Using invisible thread and dinky zigzag stitch.
- A foolproof way to finish your binding. I NEEDED to know this...!
- George Washington was 6'2". Never would have guessed.....on the coin he looks short!!
