An Itty Bitty Bit of Fusing

Last night I had so much fun watching my guild, the Choo Choo Quilters, play with my fused scraps. Our team brought in batting cut to 8 inches square, and I gave the shortest demo of my career before I had them dig into the big Rubbermaid full of fused fabrics.

This was so much easier than teaching a class, since no one had to fuse yardage. I love how the precut dots and dot-waste made itself into these compositions. Time was limited and as soon as people got their fabrics the room turned spookily quiet. It was amazing how quickly everyone got a square filled with color. I think I may have ‘convinced’ a few that fusing is the way to go.

I love them all!

  7. This is AMAZING!! I imagine it was so satisfying for you as a teacher to see so many people "get it" in such a short span of time. And I totally agree with Lindsey about this being a "no-fail" experiment because of the spectacular raw materials! Way fun!!!

    Nice bounce-back from your previous post. Color always makes me happy! Great job on the program! We might even see some new members to the guild--since we had several visitors.
