Sarah Ann Smith, author of Thread Work Unraveled, shares some of the hints she gives in her class in Arizona. This post instructs you to knot and bury your threads. If you search her blog you will find a lovely tutorial for how to do that using a couple of easy methods.
Elizabeth Barton is one of my favorite artists. I like her style alot! In this blog she shares her inspiration for a quilt and the design steps and thoughts she went through as she edited her design. That type of stuff (what I should be thinking about as I am designing) is so much what I need to learn as I grow! It was nice of Elizabeth to share.
Quilter Beth tried two different recipes for a flour paste resist and shows us her results. I have yet to try it but I love the piece she did where she wrote in the resist. I defintely want to try that and will use the heavier paste that Beth recommends.
Sujata Shah at The Roots Connection has pieced a wonderful free pieced quilt and tells you how to sew wonky blocks together without resorting to a straight ruler and 90 degree corners. I love the Gee-Bend feel of this type of quilt!
Pat Bishop tells us the recipe she used to dye the lucious damask linens. She makes it sound so easy. That is my type of dyeing! I don't call myself the accidental dyer for nothing. Tee Hee
After bribing Riley, Bea's grand daughter from The Dog in the Hole Studio, I magically won "Art Cloth" that Bea gave away to celebrate her 1,000th blog. It arrived today looking like this. Doesn't that look like a celebration?
Already I am inspired! I followed the recipe on page 54 and made a gallon of dye print paste and a cup of soda ash fixative. Boy, am I ready for my silkscreen printing date with Bea and Rosalita on Saturday!
