Focus on Fusing......Introducing Fused Shapes

I am enrolled in Melody Johnson's

Our second homework assignment is to create

fused shapes...

Strips......straight and curvy.

I plan to sub-cut skinny, long strips from 

the black and white units.

Squares, Triangles, Circles and X's

Spirals and Wavy Lines

I found it terribly relaxing to create these units

I am drawn to circles so had a play...

Confetti Circles on the Left

Sticks and Stones on the Right

I call this.....Ring Toss

This is my fusing set up...

Small cutting mat on the left,

Press Board with Release Paper 

and Iron on the right.

I listen to a book on tape and FUSE

to my heart's content.

Thanks Melody for so much Fusing FUN!

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!

Such a fun class! I'm working on my third piece and am enjoying it so much except my FMQ stinks and so does my Bernina. The tension is driving me crazy and I want to throw it in the pool. But....I'll calm down and keep at it. I don't want the classes to end!

Hi sweet to your Bernina.....she is your best friend. Perhaps the fusible is throwing your tension off. Play around with it and see if you can get her humming along again.

Love the ring toss, I'm going to steal this. Your working area is SO tidy, mine was a mess of fused fabrics all over the place.

Your pieces are SO cool!!! So you really! Nicely done!

Sharon Whittington said...

Is there a trick to removing the paper pieces when they are SO tiny?

LuAnn Kessi said...

Hi Sharon......the paper is removed BEFORE you cut the shapes....this prevents fabric fraying.
