I keep a pile of trimmings on my cutting table.
This is what I am using to inspire my next woven quilt.
Let's see what happens...
I separated my black and white stash into just that.......Blacks & Whites
Here are the black strips pinned down to the insulation board
The strips are cut randomly between 3/4 to 1 1/4 inches.
Underneath the strips is a 9 x 12 inch piece of fusible interfacing.
The black strips are laying against the fusible side.
The white strips have been woven horizontally through the black strips
Keep the piece on the weaving board....
Press the strips onto the fusible interfacing.
This will keep the strips from shifting.
Remove the strips from the weaving board.
Flip the piece over and iron directly on the fusible interfacing.
This will help keep everything secure.
Laying face down, trim off the excess strips.
Your piece will measure 9 x 12 inches.
Weaving is complete...
You are ready to add borders.
I just had to add the pink inner border as a zinger!
I chose shiny rayon, polyester and glitter threads
I am using a very fine weight Bottom Line thread in the bobbin
Remember.......tighten the bobbin screw to accommodate the thinner thread.
Right Tighty - Lefty Loosey
Random wavy lines of quilting using ALL of the threads above.
This was very fun and freeing.
