Photo Fabric Fun
We have had a rush on the printed treasures fabric sheets today ($59.95 for 10 sheets). Everyone is discovering the fun of printing photos and digital files onto fabric to use in their quilting projects. Most people have seen Elwin's talk at one of the Quilt Shows around Australia and New Zealand, and it is fantastic that you're all going home to experiment!
We've done a lot of experimentation too, and Elwin is very excited about the new high thread count muslin ($10/m)that we received in the recent shipment from America. It works so well with the Bubble Jet Set and Rinse solutions for making your own fabric sheets.
The picture above includes a close up, cropped photograph of a rose that I've added to with fusible applique shapes. Look closely and you'll see where the photo ends and the patchwork begins.
