WiP experiment continues


So what was the next stage of my experiment? I created paper template.


It ended up little smaller than my original intention but I was thrilled with the result.



I knew I will need  some sheer fabric to hold those tiny pieces in place. I used polyester organza which I have left from other projects.


I wanted to add zig zag stitch to create some sort of grid but since the letters are small I don't think it is necessary.


I transferred the template onto fabric and cut it out. I added light weight interfacing so hopefully raw edges will not fray that much. 


All finished and ready for quilting. I'm a bit afraid the quilting will ruin it but we'll see ;) I want to run small stitches around the letters but I'm also thinking about matchstick quilting. Decisions decisions.

  1. I love the way it is coming together, Vera. I would probably both stitch around the letters and go for matchstick quilting! :)

    1. OOPS deleted first comment due to a couple of typos, lol.

      Like everybody else I'm enjoying seeing this project progress :D I always about fraying on my projects, but since you interfaced the overlay and you're going to quilt it (I agree that matchstick quilting would be great with this) it should be OK as long as it's a project that isn't going to get handled or washed a lot. Besides - it's a first attempt - you'll figure out the best way to do things!
