I know, I know so long without posting here.
Too much ideas, too much to do.
Finally I did and succeed to write a post .
At the beginning it was an idea to participate in the quilt contest in Main, Germany.
The theme was Light and Shadows. I like it and have some ideas, but I am not absolutely sure I could make a competitive quilt. I have made different quilts, but still I am a low spirit quilter.
Anyway I decide to make a mini art quilt and stretch on a frame.
The pieced work in front of the window.
> a batting and back fabric.
It is better to use fusible batting.
> four strips of felt - each strip shorter than one side
> a tacker for upholstery
> And a frame with a loop of course.
Note that the backing and batting have to be smaller than the top itself to prevent bulk.
In traditional quilting backing and batting are bigger.
Lay the top right side down, then fused batting with backing.
Look at the picture how are trimmed the corners.
The exceed fused batting has to lay on the sides of the frame.
Using zig-zag zsitch atatch a felt strip at each side.
At this step you would have such result.
Now it is time to add the frame.
Lay the quilted top face down and place the frame on it.
Fold the upper side and tack.
Slightly stretch the quilt and repeat with opposite side.
Fold the corners as you wrap a parcel with paper and tack the next two opposite sides.
Screw the loop and stitch a label.
So don't make my mistake.
I suppose you are wandering about size.
I tried to hide it all the time ;)
Here it is - 6 inches square- what a mini quilt.
I am still wandering about necessity of quilting for such small pieces.
What do you think?
