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.

Brackenridge Park Quilt Project: May 16, 2017

My friends and I had quite a day yesterday.
Our goal was to get the photos of the park printed on fabric printing paper.
We went to the Conservancy to get the photos from them and use the printer in the office.
Big oops!
We had Ink Jet photo fabric and the office had a Laser printer!
We ended up using my friend’s printer.
Next step: Applique
