A Tip on Joining Fabrics and Give-Away Winners


Here’s a little tip for you. Remember, when making a fused art quilt, fabrics are not joined by sewing them together. To join fabrics, you overlap and iron or fused the fabrics together. The overlap only needs to be about 1/4.


When joining the fabrics, overlap the darker value fabric on top of the lighter value fabric. As you can see above, if the light yellow fabric overlaps the dark purple fabric, a shadow is cast. This looks bad. And I should know having done it many times.


And now for the winners of the fat quarter give-away. You know they know their overlap tips. Winners are: Nancy S and Mary H. Congratulations!

Stay tuned for more give-aways next week.
