Creative sewing in shades of purple: machine quilting and emroidery
This week I decided to have a play with some of my hand-dyed fabrics in shades of purple.
I chose a piece of purple fabric that was a little dull in color like antiqued or aged fabric and I’ve quilted it all over so that there is a lovely texture.
Around the edges of the quilted fabric I’ve added “soft edges”. This technique is done using strips water soluble stabilizer and sewing machine needlelace around the edges. I plan to layer this piece onto a background.
I’ve used this technique several times before on my art quilts and it creates a nice “soft edged” effect which looks wonderful when making layered quilts.
Now I’m ready to start adding some design elements using the contents of the box. I already have a design in mind so check back later for progress.
