A Close Shave

A Close Shave  – Journal Quilt.  I created this as a class sample for a Permission 2 Play Class at JanniLou Creations Quilt Shop.  This was created using a base of shaving cream, dye na flow paints sprinkled on top, swirled with a toothpick, then silk was placed on top to make the print.  It was later appliqued onto batik fabric, layered on batting and backing fabric, free motion quilted with a couching foot, and fused binding.

  1. Hi roycecreative……..thanks for your supportive words.  I just followed my instincts on this piece….those black paint splotches in the center kept calling out for black in the border.  I decided to try out my new free-motion couching foot and it worked beautifully with the black cord.  I have never thought of myself as brave……thanks for the vote of confidence!

    There is a shave cream printing tutorial on my blog…..if you are interested in learning this technique.

    My Best To You,
