On Friday, the guild is sponsoring a class by one of our members, Caroline, that will be held at the same place we have our Sit and Sew each month. This class sounds like a lot of fun - no need to bring our machines. Yeah!! It's a class in fusing and from the sample I think it will be so cool.
It's called "Cogs and Gears" (I think) and is mainly picking out our colors, using patterns or we can design our own, and then fusing the designs down. I would call it kind of like a New York Beauty only fused. When I signed up, I figured I would use the hand dyed prints I did in Jana's class last summer that was such fun. First of all, I found the black with the multicolored dots that really look cool with the dyed fabrics. Then, just the other day I was in Joann's and "spotted" this really neat fabric. Figured it would look smashing with my pretty dyed fabrics. So game plan has changed. After fusing, I can see some embellishment with pretty Sulky thread and then machine quilting. Looking forward to this class very much!! (Click to enlarge)
