Focus on Fusing.......Fused Fabric




I am enrolled in Melody Johnson's






My fabrics have been dyed...


The hand dyes are all fused...

You can see the fusible paper 

on the back side of the fabrics.






I spent the day trimming off all of the un-fused

edges on the hand dyed fat quarters.






I need to be sure that the fusing goes all the way

to the edges of the fabric.






Lots of edge trimmings.






Rather than work with an entire fat quarter 

of fused fabric,

I am cutting off 3 inch strips to work with.






It took most of the day to get the 50 fat quarters 

trimmed and ready to work with.











The fabrics are prepped...

I am ready to begin creating!



I will post my homework 

as I complete it each week.




Every Friday Melody posts a 

new homework assignment.


 Melody is offering this as a FREE online class!

All those trimmings would make beautiful clothesline wrapped and coiled bowls and baskets! I am so behind on Melody's class. Due to sciatica, I haven't been able to do anything. I hope to be able to start fusing and quilting soon. Love your dyed fabrics!

I am 2 behind...really won't do the 2 or at least one...I did the house piece but I'm not quilting it...just keeping it in my book. As far as the last one (we are off for Labor Day, ha!) I may do it sometime next week...just have two other projects to work on. Her posts are good. Look forward to what all you come up with! I'm sure it will be stunning!
