|Finished ID Badge #3|
I inserted my name into the vinyl section. I used 1/4 yard of fabric for this project bringing my total to 4 3/4 yards of fabric used from my stash. I'm slowly chipping away at that 50 yard goal! This was goal number 3 on my 1st Quarter FAL list.
|Fabrics for the inJeanious Up-cyling challenge|
Making these three name tags wasn't that had...so why did it take me six months to actually get it done??? Thanks FAL for helping me get it completed!
I also started a new project. The guild challenge this year is called inJEANious Up-cycling. The basic rules are to use recycled denim fabric only for the top and preferably blue denim. It has to be three layers, quilted and have a hanging sleeve. You can use buttons, beads, lace, thread, etc. as embellishments.
Last summer, I had ideas and even sketched a thumbnail design; but, that design wouldn't work because I had planned to use some corduroy fabric as part of the design! I wished we could have been given the rules for the challenge in June rather than September so I could have thought about designs using the parameters. It takes me months to come up with ideas!! Perhaps if I keep doodling with design, eventually, designing will come easier for me.
At Christmas time, I came up with an idea. I've been sketching. February 1 was the deadline to submit photo and entry form for the Clark County Quilters April Quilt show. This is the first time that I've submitted a photo of the fabrics with the words "Imagine a figure on a pieced background!" I sure hope I finish it in time to hang at the guild quilt show!!!!
I won't be able to share the project with you until after the April guild meeting because we are supposed to keep it under wraps. I'll be sure to keep notes to share with you later! By the way, if you are in the Vancouver area April 4-7, please come to the show. Click the link above for more information.
