Thread-u-cation Thursdays: Fast and Slow
A few weeks ago I showed you a video of this little quilt, Kay’s Bouquets #12 in progress. Now it is complete and has a new name. One of my favorite things about making a fused art quilt is that it is fast and easy. Because the little quilt is made from pre-fused fabric scraps, the design evolves quickly and is improvised on the spot.
When I compare the speed of creating the fused quilt top with the hours of making stitch choices, thread color decisions, and actually stitching the quilt, I am amazed at how much time I spend on the hand embroidery. And, I’m amazed at how much I enjoy this strange combination of speed (fusing) and slowness (stitching). Like sugar and salt, a tasty combination.
