It's that time
when August's green corn moon is full
and all Log Cabin Loonies
report in to Julie K Quilts.
My report is that I've finished my
Strawberries and Chocolate log cabin.
30" x 30"
You might remember that I pieced it
scrap basket collection of
1 1/4" strips.
I love running my hand over the surface
and feeling the texture created
from perel cotton and a big stitch.
I'm going to be presenting a labeling
and documenting demo
at one of my quilt groups next month so
I wanted to try a different technique and product
for my label.
I used the June Taylor Sew-In
Colorfast Fabric Sheets for
the Ink Jet Printer.
It was easy to design a label on the computer,
easy to print,
but, to be honest, I don't care for
the feel of the fabric after it's been set.
It has a plastic rubbery feel
and it was very difficult to needle
through when I added the perel cotton
stitching around the edge.
But I do have to add that the
photo transferring quality is excellent
and so much improved since this technique
was first introduced years ago.
Does anyone have a suggestion of a
different product that
has a better feel?
I'd love to know.
Your log cabin loony
has been crazy fun!
Until Next Time-
