For the past few days Frieda Anderson from Walks in the Woods - Art Quilts has been showing how to make these cute little Christmas trees in a wall hanging.....mine looks nothing like her beautiful wall hanging but I just wanted to try the technique and make something fairly fast.
Laura and Frieda were doing with these tools.
I have a Scallop, Pinking and a Wave blade and new cutter so I decided it was time to play with my blades. New toys are so much fun!
I did all my free motion quilting on my trusty ole 1591 Singer sewing machine. This was a lot more fun than repairing jeans like I did the other day.
I have learned how to do paper piecing this year.....I couldn't figure it out and blamed it on being left handed. All I had to do was sign up for a paper piecing blog hop and commit......that meant I had to take the time to learn it and guess what? It clicked and I love doing it now.
Next year I want to work on more projects that involve thread painting, fused art, applique, Zentangle and drawing.....what new things do you want to learn or work on?
Take a little time and learn about the techniques that both of them use.You'll find they also love bright and beautiful fabrics! They both also have newsletters that are worth signing up for.
