I mentioned previously why I did the four color thing. It all goes to the flame on the building and the poem.
I decided that I would like to try using a freezer paper pattern that I could iron to the fabric and cut around rather than using a fusible (and tracing the pattern 4 times). I also thought that if I used some stick glue, it would help keep things softer for the quilting part.
Mini Quilt post about different sheers for overlay. I brought home a champagne organza and a grey tulle.
The layers are backing fabric, Pel-tex, thin poly batting, quilt top, tulle.
So the quilting. I had originally planned diagonal straight line quilting with my walking foot, but, as I was in the basement riding the bike to nowhere, I realized that my walking foot might not play nice with the tulle. I tested and was right! Caught and tore it. So, what to do. I needed something dense to hold all the pieces down and in place. Solution: Matchstick quilting that I was totally and completely
All in all, I am quite happy with how it turned out. For me, creating these things is a journey. I really never truly know what it will look like until I am done.
