Yesterday it was beautiful outside with little wind. A very good day for Discharging fabric. You need good ventilation when working with discharge paste and/or bleach products. I also wear a mask seen in one of the photos.
This first picture shows a shot of the paste after I have applied it to the black fabric. It has to dry.
The next step is to iron the discharged fabric. I wear my mask to do this because of the fumes and I don't have my ironing board outside :)
Here in the picture below are some tools I used to print the fabric. Just some things from around the house. A piece of cardboard, a plastic tray something came packaged in and some netting from an onion bag.
My good friend Kathleen invited me to go for a ride over to Keepsake Quilting recently. It was a beautiful day and although I had some housework to get done, I thought I could get to that another time, maybe tomorrow. ;) So we had a pleasant ride, stopped at the Moulton Farm for some warm, fresh apple cider doughnuts, delicious!!! On to Keepsake. I had to take a couple of pictures of the outside of their beautiful shop. The flowers were just beautiful!
Kathleen made a very cute baby quilt for a friend of hers. She bought the fabric squares at the Mancuso Show and she found just the right solid fabric at Keepsake for the border of the quilt.
Remember to play a little every day!
