Alisha, on the other hand, is not slow, not scared of anything. So, in the water she jumps. I wade in an inch at a time. She uses a lot more color; however, Alisha, your color wheel only has earth tones on it. (Big smile). We are both so predictable.
So, here is her progress on her blog http://www.alishafredrickson.blogspot.com/ and here is my progress.
First, I did what the magazine said to. I did use a Quilting Arts magazine which has the same type of book cover in it along using with the hardback book. The girl in the QA mag said to start out by laying your strips of fabric onto fusible interfacing and then weaving the strips across the warp and waft. I will not do that again. I cannot weave, it all gets jumbled up and what a mess.
Since I already have my first set of strips laid out on the interfacing, I am not going to pull them off.
So, I just fused them down. I will figure out the rest later. Weaving, NO. Laying out strips, okay.
I am at the point now where I must figure out about the interfacing situation. So, I just used a press cloth and fused the strips that I have done down well and removed the fabrics and hoped that I had enough of them close enough together so that the whole thing would not fall apart. Yipeee, it did not. It held together well and I did do a little stitching on it just in case.
