So, I showed you I was painting fabric - it's starting to come together! I had bought a book called Shoreline Quilts by Cyndy Lyle Rymer a long, long time ago, and always wanted to have a play with the cover quilt. The technique is one I've never done. It's done collage style, sticking down the parts with spray adhesive, then covering with a layer of tulle and quilting. I've got mine covered with tulle, but will wait a few days before quilting - that's supposed to help keep the adhesive from gumming up your needle, according to my friend Cathy No-Blog, and I always listen to her. Right, Cathy?
This is so freeing - all the parts are freehand cut, except the background strips - I did use the rotary cutter on those. The rest I just played with scissors. It's all pure play - I highly recommend this method!
