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

I am enrolled in Melody Johnson's

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 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 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 post will be out this week. Lots of fun!
