So the time is up…
Block No 1.
This time last week Carolyn and I were in the rain forest. It was a magical place.
So I decided on the rain forest.
I've only had a couple of hours to do the project today, and I can't quilt it because I lent my monofilament thread to my friend…. I'll have it back on Tuesday.
I scanned my drawing, in fact I drew it smaller than 6" because I had to use an hotel cup holder as a guide.
I enlarged it to 6" today by putting the picture into 'pages' the mac equivalent of word. I could re size the pattern to 6" square by using the ruler in the program.
Then I traced the picture onto a good quality fabric with a 05 black pigment ink pen.
The fabric is not as high thread count as I would really like, but… it was the colour I liked.
The fabric is not washed.
Next I colored and shaded with Tsukineko fabrico pens.
I'm going to leave about an inch of fabric all round the image when I quilt it… because I'm not sure it I will make 53 small quilts or maybe join them.
I think they will be 53 small mounted quilts….!!!
