I painted the eyes in on my two fish quilts instead of using buttons.
I really don't like buttons on quilts except wall hangings. I used paint t
hat says it is for fabric, wood, glass and etc. Only place big enough was
in the living room. Some were all black eyes and others were green with b
lack centers. While I was waiting to go to town to buy eye paint I made two
string quilts using foundation material. Quilt #1 has 10 inch squares with
2 1/2 inch sashing and 5 1/2 inch borders. Quilt #2 was a 6 inch square bl
ocks and 2 inch sashing squares and 4 1/2 inch borders. These two quilts ar
e so colorful and bright. I love to make these no brainer quilts. Still ha
ve strips of material left over for but that will be for another time.
My next quilt will be either a modern quilt or one that has dogs appl
iqued on it. I am thinking about using felt for the dogs. Do you have to pr
epare the felt any way before cutting the dogs out? I usually use heat and
bond for calico fabric before applique.
