Morning Glory

It's been a very busy summer but now that we're back from holidays and things are somewhat back to normal, I'm hoping to get a bit more blogging done.

Since I already have photos of more Journal Pages, I want to document the half dozen still from this binder. Zippered binders and plastic sheet protectors are great for keeping the “page quilts” as well as all the information together for easy reference.

Quilt # 42

Morning Glory

Challenge – To use ordinary Crayola crayons on Fusible Web

Techniques - I took a close-up of one of my morning glories and used a photo program to change it to this, then enlarged it page size.

Taped fusible web to the paper and coloured with the crayons and cut the flower outline. I traced the outline on freezer paper, added white fabric and layered the coloured fusible web on top. Placed the three layers between parchment paper and pressed lightly to make web stick to fabric.

The flower was cut out and applied to a hand painted background and the edges were free-motioned zigzagged. The centre and grey areas were thread painted before making the quilt sandwich to give some dimension to those areas.


Quilting – Made the quilt sandwich and quilted blues and lightly over centre and grey areas. Stippled background.


Edges – Blanket stitched.

Back  - Hand painted “Background” fabric.

Date Made – February 10, 2007

Inspiration - original

Conclusions – I like the subtle look of the colour under the thead painting.

Maker – Terry Whyte
