A favorite tool for those making fused art quilts is the decorative rotary cutter blade. Decorative blades come in a variety of shapes (pinking, wave, scallop) that add a delightfully embellished edge to fused fabrics. Decorative edges add movement and interest to quilt designs.
But how do you add hand embroidery to that decorative edge?
This quilt shows a variety of ways to add hand stitchery to the pinked edge. You can see fabric cut with a pinking blade in the wallpaper stripes, flowers, vase, and top edge of the table cloth. Each fabric shape is stitched in a different way. Over the next few days I’ll show you how to hand embroider the pinked edge. Please stay tuned!
