I started going around the letters with yellow zigzag so they would match the hats but now I don't like the look of it at all. It makes them look appliqued and I love that they are pieced. I am worried that if I try to undo the zig zag it will leave a lot of holes and a rough look around the letters. Also it is not a very good job of zigzag. So I am taking a bit of a break from the red hats and working on the silk teapots. I also hauled out a ufo that had to be pinned and quilted. I have it pinned now and will start quilting it soon.
The next question will be how to quilt the teapots. I have never quilted on silk before but a friend did and it's not easy. That means the design will have to be fairly simple but what?
We have a busy weekend coming up. A gathering of artists to share ideas at workshops not really run by instructors but just a fun time of collaborating. I will be working with Batik and fabric dyeing. Hopefully I can pick someone else's brain more than they pick mine. Anyway, there will not likely be another post until Monday unless I have some photos that I just have to share. We will be coming home at night so there may be some time for Blogger!
