Every week, I go to the gym and work out with my friend Linda for an hour. I've known Linda for years and trust her: she's smart, well trained, and keeps me on my toes doing all of those exercises we all "think we know how to do" correctly.
I hate to admit it to myself and to others, but I really did just ruin a small pillow top by machine quilting it. You read correctly: I ruined a perfectly nice piece of patchwork.
Now that you've dyed a spectacular piece(s) of multi-colored fabric, it's time to show it off. What better way than to make a one-of-a-kind Sketchbook? Featuring a piece of multicolor fabric with a thread-sketched abstract mum design on the cover, this cover holds a 7" x 10" coil-bound sketchbook securely with an elastic to hold it closed when it's tossed in your bag.
This post will show you how to sketch free-motion machine quilting designs like a bird motif on a bright piece of fabric and embellish the shirt to create the cutest little outfit.
