What I Am Working On
I have been working on a few different projects lately. First of all I started Zentangling on fabric! Here is my first attempt. I am enjoying it every bit as much as I enjoyed it on paper :)
I ironed the fabric onto freezer paper which helps stabilize it for the Zentangling. I pulled out all my Zentangle books for ideas and inspiration and I'm having a blast!
Not quite done with this one, but getting close. It's very relaxing.
I used a couple of circular shaped designs from this Karen Kay Buckley appliqué pattern to make a basic design on the fabric and I am Zentangling within the design elements.
I have also been working on the TQS block of the month, which I am half sizing. This little block will measure at three inches finished. I used Thangles to make the half square triangles, which finish at 3/4 of an inch. The Thangles helped tremendously with these tiny little pieces.
Several people are half sizing this quilt and are posting helpful hints and instructions on the TQS forum. I have been following that, and found the math already done for the basket block (mine is not quite done but the rest is appliqué, the piecing part is done :)
This little block will finish at 2 1/2 inches! It's tiny and was challenging, but fun!
