I have order Ricky's Stable stuff but I do not think it will arrive till next week... I kinda need to do the blocks this weekend..
Do you think Solvy washable stabilizer would work. I have heard you can use it for embroidery projects. I was thinking I would just lay it in water after I finished the block and before I squared the blocks up.
IF the quilt was just for me... I would just wait until I washed the quilt but since it is going into a project quilt I figure I should remove the stabilizer before setting them into the blocks.
This project came up in the last minute. ... put the project in the ..... HOW DID I GET MYSELF INTO THIS ??? category.
I personally like Ricky's Stable Stuff. It's a stiff paperlike stabilizer that gets really soft when washed. You only need to trim it away from the outer portion of the design. I think he uses it in some of his videos.
I need to make some simple leaf blocks for a quilt. I want to use the window style of fusibles to keep the blocks soft. I will probably do some thread painting on patches before I put them into the block.
I have never done anything like this before... Can anyone give tips on the more artistic / embellishing type of quilting? What kind of stabilizer for the thread painting should I used before I put my patches together.
I want to use some contemporary technique but I look through my books and magazines and I have very little on that kind of quilting techniques. I have some on order from Amazon but I want to get started this weekend.
thanks for any help / instruction / directions...
