While going through my stack of Quilting Arts magazine for the billionth time I put in post-its of all the techniques I want to try. Tried a few on Friday. I'm really pleased with the painting with pattern stitches by Carole Redlich (issue 19 fall 2005 pg72) I tried. I prefer to call it fabric collage with my fancy pants sewing machine! I'm working on a piece about 11" square. may cut it into smaller pieces for a journal quilt or it would be perfect for the fabric charms that have everyones attention at the moment.
