Oh boy. I think I'm in trouble. I only say that because yesterday I took a day long class with Lenore Crawford. I am geeked to the nines. I am SO TEMPTED to pop out a couple of Dear Jane's blocks using fabric fusing methods. Oh dear. A monster has been released! -Jeanne in Michigan

I'm not familiar with this at all. I've heard of it used in art quilts I think but have no idea how it works. Will be very interested in seeing what you come up with.

Jeanne, That is a wonderful piece you made from the photo. Are the pieces glued down with fabric adhesive or are they stitched raw edge?  I can't wrap my brain around how you would use this method to make the Dear Jane blocks. I think I would have to take a class. I need hands on instruction. :-)

Judy, regarding the technique... it is fusing fabric with that plastic melts with an iron stuff. I am totally new to this but the class taught me tons.

Lenore Crawford taught the class. I highly recommend her. Funny. Thoughtful. Non-judgmental. Shares every insider tip she can think of. Disdain for hoity-toity anything.

So I will be:

Having a way with my Merry May... using fusing.

Haha! I just made a poem. I'll post that effort to the appropriate discussion thread. Might take a day...

Jeanne in Michigan commenting here Not so sure what you think is great but, and I'm taking great liberties here...I think you might be referring to the fiber arts stuff? If so, I emailed the same pics to the course instructor Lenore Crawford. With her guidance I painted up the shadows. Here 'tis:

Jeanne, your art quilt is wonderful, I'd never have guess it was your first.

Hi Jacy,

This fiber arts thing is opening up a whole new world. If anybody is interested LenoreCrawford travels the world and is the best instructor I have ever had the pleasure to take a class from. She is quick, thorough, non-judgmental, quick to praise...and best of all SHARES ALL HER HARD EARNED TIPS, CHEATS AND SHORT CUTS.I documented the bulldog portrait and it took less than a day, start to finish.Anybody who can attempt Dear Jane can do this stuff. I am going to try to open up a new thread with a couple pictures that show the process. -Jeanne in Michigan

Well, I was unsuccessful. I cannot start a post. But I think I was already told that. Sorry. So what I did was post the pics/rough tutorial on a blog that can be found at:

https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3313698235461357030#editor/target=post;postID=2260255656311817531;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=0;src=postname

 

I sent it to myself in an email and the link worked. I am hoping it works here, too.

This, of course, will have to be copied and pasted because I don't know how to make the link "live".

Jeanne, when I try to go to the link it says I don't have permission.
