These is my sample for Paula Reid' s Challenge for July 2012 FMQ Challenge at Insights from SewCalGal.
|Front using Isacord|
Since I did not have any Golden Threads paper I decided to try Glad Press 'n Seal. I have used this for applique placement but not for quilting through.
I printed the design provided by Paula and layered the Press 'n Seal over it, it stuck nicely to the paper. I traced the design with a fine Sharpie and let it dry. I then peeled it off the paper on stuck it on my quilt sandwich (again it stuck to the fabric really well) and stitched through.
|Using Press 'n Seal|
I used Isacord on top and Sulky Rayon on the back. I really like the shine of the rayon but the thread kept shredding when I tried it on the top.
|Back using Sulky Rayon thead|
Needed to use tweezers to remove as some areas are pretty small, but it did come off clean and easily at the stitching lines.
After removing the Press 'n Seal, I stippled the centre and area around the design.
The only problem I ran into was that a little of the ink transferred onto the thread, but I would certainly use this method again with darker thread but would be leery to try it with white fabric and white thread.
