Jingle Bear Rock

is progressing…

Fabric shape appliqued to background. Freezer paper template.

Positioning the next piece for applique. Leaving the freezer paper in place helps to give body and ease placement.

Elmer's Glue basting the next applique shape in place.

Heat setting the glue.

Pattern on the left, my work on the right. There is progress being made!

Preparing for

hand applique…

I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew.  Just look at all those jagged edges?!  And, there are some itty bitty pieces.  After tracing around the freezer paper templates and cutting out the fabric shapes, I need to set this aside for a little while. My eyes are googley!

This has been a good indoor project for today.  We are in the middle of a heat wave.  It was 80 degrees at 6 A.M.  A storm is about to hit.  Maybe some rain will cool it off…

Enjoy your day and the stitches you make!

This quilt has it ALL!!!  Crazy quilting, strip piecing, painting, beading, applique, thread painting, batiks, hand dyed, cheesecloth…!!!

There is a LOT going on, but it isn’t too over the top!  The colors are FAB and the spider web was quite effectively beaded and glistening.  I thought it apropos for Friday and Fall and nearly Hallowe’en. Enjoy it!  ; )
