Quilt Documentation # 120
Just a little quilt that I made to experiment with Kim Thittichai's techniques as shown in her book Hot Textiles – Inspiration and Techniques with Heat Tools.
The techniques I used were:
Painting fusible web and applying it to my background fabric (orange and blue).
Melted plastic shopping bags sandwiched with parchment paper and ironed until some melting occurred (grey near the botton edge).
Applied foil to the fusible web using the edge of the iron.'
Used puff paint to create the foam in the waves.

I added some borders and quilted using metallic thread. It measures 13” w. X 11” h.
An orphan block that I added triangles and an edge strip to, became the the back of the quilt. I'm not sure when this was made as I had not signed or dated this quilt. I have now signed it. A good reminder to at least add your name and year even you don't have to make a label.
This was a lots of fun to make
