On this blog the members of Sky-is-the-Limit group show the results of the challenge quilts they make. We started with each quarter a new theme, but have changed this to a monthly theme. Knowing that life can interfere with good intentions it is not compulsary to make a quilt each month, but at least 4 quilts per year should be doable. Every quilt measures 12"x12".
I wanted to find out if some white 'stuff' called waves was useable or just for decorating flower bunches! Base of calico was covered by sari strips, one layer of Lutrador and 2 layers of the 'stuff'. They were placed with spray adhesive and the free machined. I then used a set pattern to draw the squares. I used my ancient Pfaff to do this piece and it behaved beautifully.............this is after my husband removed a pin from its interior. This had been causing problems for ages!
The piece was heated with my heat gun, the Lutrador melted first and some of the top layer........so it was plastic! It all looks a bit like the frost patterns we used to get on windows.
My first thought was Mont Blanc so the background is ice white with FMQ, then crosswords jumped into my mind with all their 'blank' spaces, so I stamped some squares onto pieces of Lutradur, stitched around them and them burnt through the spaces with a heat gun. Finally I found some foam letters with sticky backs and these helped to emphasise the crossword part of the quilt. By accident the Lutradur ended up looking like very crisp snow!
