But it’s a bit of a disaster.
A generous free tutorial from Anna Mason. I prefer her method to Louis de Masi’s because it’s dryer and there’s much less buckling on the paper.
Took about a week just to draw an eye on my iPad (from reference). I should probably keep my day job.
I had this idea to work on a couple of softie patterns cos I couldn’t find many that I liked during my softie phase.
I had resolved not to buy any more fabric, but I didn’t have any that were wide enough for the backing of the Fancy Fox Quilt.
So I decided to join two pieces of 44 inch quilting cotton as seamlessly as possible. I used low tack 3M removable tape to “baste” the fabrics together, carefully matching the print where they would be sewn (fourth image). Then I sewed through the tape (fifth image).
It was not an exaggeration to say that it took the whole day just to join up the backing fabric. And the whole of the next day just to baste it!
Maybe it’s magic, maybe she’s a lunatic.
