Focus on Fusing.......Class Homework




I am enrolled in Melody Johnson's



http://focusonfusing.blogspot.com/



This week I sorted through my hand dyes:


These are a few that might work for this class.






We won't be using wild hand dyes at first...




We will use calmer hand dyes like these:


I do notice that the majority of my hand dyes

read as medium values.......hmmm.






I need each color to have values from very light

to very dark......like this run of pink hand dyes.



I spent Tuesday dyeing primary and secondary

colors on the color wheel......48 fat quarters.


Today I washed and dried them.


Now I am ready to fuse.....ALL of them!


Melody prefers 

Pellon Wonder-Under 805  fusible web






This press will make short work of all that fusing!






This press has 7 times the pressing surface

of a regular iron.........wish me luck!



I will post my homework 

as I complete it each week.


Every Friday Melody posts a 

new homework assignment.

I'm in the class too, we were also in a Baron class together as well, perhaps Dyeing to Design. Your fabrics are wow! My studio looks like a bomb went off with today's move to a Composition!!!! I'll be checking back to see your progress.

I agree with above comment...your fabrics are WOW!!! Mine are all scraps here and there and some 1/2 yard pieces. BUT I'm having fun with Melody's posts! I'm all caught up...next post will be out this week. Lots of fun!
