Thoughts and process.
I've shown you the process of making my own fabric for part of this block…. in post No 4.
A piece of fusible web (steam a seam lite) was fused to the back of the image.
I drew the bird onto white dyers muslin with a mechanical pencil and I began to color it in with Derwent metallic pencils… the grey colors were perfect.
Then it was colored with prisma colored pencils, they are quite waxy and I can get a soft effect on the fabric.
I worked through the sand color, added the white and then added the grey over the white.
Free motion applique catching the fabric right on the edge holds the image down. Then I switched to an open toed foot and completed the rest of the background of the quilt.
The 6" square to frame the image is a zig zag. 3.00 Sw X .30 Sl and I also added a straight stitch either side of the satin stitch, just to give it a neater appearance.
So Carolyn Honey….. block No 2. Completed….!!!!
