THERE ARE MANY WAY TO DO PAPER PIECING THESE DAYS BUT CERTAINLY THIS IS BY FAR THE EASIEST WAY TO ACHIEVE GREAT RESULTS. IF YOU EVER WANT TO KNOW JUST GIVE ME A CALL OR SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHARE WITH YOU WHAT I HAVE LEARNED! WHILE THIS WAS MADE AS A TABLE TOPPER, IT COULD BE MADE LARGER BY ADDING MORE SQUARES AND MAKING A QUILT. IMAGINE SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL ON YOUR BED IN YOUR COLORS.
IT BEGINS WITH MAKING THIS COAT OUT OF BEAUTIFUL BOILED WOOL, THEN CREATING THE DIAGRAM, IN THIS CASE A BUTTERFLY, AND NEEDLE PUNCHING MERINO WOOL AND SILK INTO THE BOILED WOOL. HOURS OF LABOR IN THE CREATION OF THE COAT AND A LOT MORE IN THE CREATION OF THE DIAGRAM AND FILLING IT WITH MERINO WOOL AND SILK. THIS COAT IS ONE OF A KIND AND RETAILS FOR $850.00. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ANY OF MY PIECES YOU CAN PURCHASE EXISTING OR I CAN CUSTOM CREATE JUST FOR YOU THIS WORK OF ART!
Very soon now, I will be teaching this wonderful TUFFET CLASS. The cost will be around $160.00 and will include instruction, supplies for making the tuffet but not the fabric or Muslin! You will need 2 1/2″ strips or 1/2 yards/meters cuts of 12 to 18 different fabrics, depending on how much variety you like! Call me at 403-327-4366 to find out the date, time and additional information that you will need to prep for before class. This is sooooo fun that you will want to make one for all your grand kids, friends and family. Each one is a work of art in itself.
Wow! I just completed this course with Elaine Quehl! I am so pleased with the results which I will post a picture off shortly. This is for sure a glimpse into the future of my creations with fabric that I dye for each specific project. Can’t wait till all my supplies arrive so I c!an go to it! In the picture you will see that the samples some what resemble batiks in design. This is PFD cotton but I also dyed Dupioni Silk, Silk Organza, Silk Velvet and cheese cloth. It was very interesting to see how all these fabrics absorbed the same dye so differently.
