For the challenge we were given a fat quarter of the challenge fabric and asked to make a 10 1/2 in unfinished block and these blocks will be used in making some charity quilts for the Prairie Women on Snowmobiles.
Here are the blocks that I have made for this challenge .......
Thank you Haus of Stitches and the Sask. Stitches Conference for the lovely gift. I can see more play time ahead with these goodies.
And now for a little play time...... of a different sort.... I was wanting to try a larger gelli plate and found that they are hard ti find locally sew what's a girl to do.... I started looking on line and found a couple recipes for making a permanent gelli plate. The ingredients are simple and found almost anywhere. I tried out a couple of them and this is what I ended up with....
|a round gelli plate about 3/4 inch thick|
|one of my new gelli plates |
8 x 11 inches
I did find some useful tips in the info I had read and watched..... using simple tissue paper to clean up the wet surface of the plate before it sets works wonderfully.
|before .... with foam and bubbles|
|After ... nice and clean|
Sew now there will be a little more play time coming and creating some one of a kind fabric samples :0)
Thanks for stopping by
