Fabric Inchie Collage

dotslifeandart Fabric Inchie Collage

I told before how you can make matching, but not equal paper inchies*.

Here she shows how to make wondeful fabric inchies.
It must be a lot of fun.

* What is an inchie? An Inchie is a 1″ square of art. They are made from paper or fabric and then embellished in innumerable ways (see links below).

Faux Quilt Votives

Just Something I Made Faux Quilt Votives

I find this idea really great, too: simply scan old quilts, print, sew a little and wrap around a votive ;-)
It’s a little bit as with the Fabric/Paper Place Mat.
And I think that it would look wonderful, too, with a paper Crazy Quilt!

By the way: the paper gets more transparent when you paint it slightly with oil.
It will smell a while, but then the smell disappears ;-)

On the page she also shows how to print the quilt picture onto inkjet T-shirt transfer and embellish leather with it – great!

Polypolygon Tilings

Steven Dutch UW Polypolygon Tilings

They look great, those tilings, don’t they?
You can find even more on the site, one more beautiful than the next.

I thought that they can excellently be used for quilting, but also for multi colour knitting, -crochet, -beading – in short for everything that you can do with filet crochet/cross stitch embroidery charts.

I mentioned before that I don’t quilt, therefore I don’t have any experience.
If the quilting wasn’t possible I’d be glad getting a comment on why this should be so :)

Otherwise: let’s get to work ;-))
