Brackenridge Park Quilt Project, June 29, 2017

After a brief hiatus for trips and granny duty, the Brack Pack met today to work on the Brackenridge Park Quilt Project.
We have the quilt all pieced.
Our first attempt at printing photos on fabric was a bust.
Marti took the photos to her brother, and together, they did a great job printing the photos on fabric.
When we last met in May, we still didn’t know exactly how we were going to applique the photos.
We had bought wool felt and discussed embroidering with Sue Spargo – type stitches.
During one of my granny trips, I had made a super hero cape for my grandson. I used the fusible interfacing technique of applique. I made a perfect circle to applique on the cape. Today, I tried this applique technique on one of our extra photos, and we decided it would work.
All the photos are ready to be sewn on to the quilt.
My first attempt ended up with an upside-down photo.
The second attempt was crooked.
So, we shelved the project until we meet again next Friday.
It was definitely fun getting back with this group.

    1. Brackenridge Park is in San Antonio. It was founded in 1899 and is located below the headwaters.
      The park holds memories for many people.
      My friends and I wanted to support the Brackenridge Conservancy by making a quilt for them to either hang in their office or auction as a fundraiser.
      It is also an excuse for us to meet for lunch!
