For the April FMQ Challenge with SewCalGal, Don Linn taught us how to transfer an image to fabric. http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/2012/04/april-2012-fmq-challenge-tutorial-by.html
I put this off and put this off. When I finally tried it I LOVED it! Look at what I can do now? It was easy. I just scanned the printed fabric, blew up the pic, transferred it, and viola! See how it matches the little planes in the block below it? I will definitely use this method again.
Still contemplating filling in the area outside of the airplane with a tight stipple like we learned in Leah Day's blogs. I haven't practiced enough to feel confident in that yet. Sometimes less is more.
For the FNSI I plan to make a pillow case (a theme for April to go to kids with cancer). This FNSI is sponsored by Arrow Cabinets in Elkhorn, WI.
I also plan on working on my April 12 UFO's for 2012 crumb quilt. Check out what Heidi and the others are doing! http://handmadebyheidi.blogspot.com/2012/03/april-20th-friday-night-sew-in-big.html
