Focus on Fusing.......Leaf Shapes

I am enrolled in Melody Johnson's

Our third homework assignment is to create

leaf shapes...

I am using my hand dyed fabrics 

in this class...

I decided to jump ahead in the assignments and

create a fused quilt...

I chose a color story I wanted to work with 

and  began building a composition...

I added units created in the previous lessons...

Fusing liberates you to create a composition

that you cannot easily make 

with a pieced design...

I added a 2 inch border of black all the way 

around so that I have fabric to do a 

wrapped edge treatment...

The top has been machine quilted....

Back Side of Quilt Top

On the right is Fast 2 Fuse which is used in the 

wrapped edge treatment.

The black border fabric has been fused 

to the back side of the Fast 2 Fuse...

Red hand dyed fabric 

has been fused to the back...

This is the completed quilt

15 x 15 inches

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!
