I am reading the newsletter and realized that I have spent the past few days working on completing a quilted wall hanging that I started in a class at Riverwalk with Phil Beaver that I believe I took back in the Spring of 2006? I thought it was all about applique and jumped blindly into a class that had us doing some type of rock salt dyeing and then it was all about raw edge applique. Boy was I ever in over my head! I did the dyeing and cut the many pieces and then reluctantly used dots of school to affix the pieces to a background. I promptly folded it and put it away possibly never to be seen again. I found it a few years later and really liked the idea but hated the solid background so I gingerly pealed the leaves and petals from the background and then looked for a more appropriate substitute. Once I found it, I decided to tried a different techniques of affixing the pieces as a quilted sandwich using monofilament thread. Once again, it was relegated to the UFO stash. This weekend I saw someone on social media remarking about making this" UFOvember" and encouraged makers to finish what we started so out it came again. I have no pictures from the before and have a photo of my current thread painting progress. I am planning to work until it is completed.
