Playing with Pears...



The Art Sisters gathered together

to play with PEARS...


Here is how our day went:








Playing with the fossil fern fabrics......always FUN!






Nancy prepared the pattern






Nancy's pear samples........for inspiration!






Plastic cartoon sheet......to help with fabric placement











The center fabric has little contrast...





Virginia is trying a darker fabric in the center of the pear...










The darker fabric works for this pear






We are using Fixion pens to trace on pre-fused fabrics





The Frixion pen lines disappear 

when the pear is fused with the iron






The finished pear composition 

is mounted on stretched canvas frames






Light and Dark backgrounds both work nicely.






Nothing left to do but clean up the mess!

What a fun idea especially when you work with your friends. I've used that plastic to draw possible quilting designs but never thought of it as a layout tool for fabric pieces. I must remember this.
