Laura’s Born To Run!

I finished it!!! I think this has more stitches in it than any other combined design I have done thus far.  Thank you for your wonderful digitizing work.  I know no “horse people” so this work will be donated to a local church auction that supports local women’s shelters.

FYI, the label on the back is done on Ultra Suede.  It makes a very classy label, right where you deserve to be!

Have a great day and thanks again.    Laura

Beautiful job Laura!  The church will love it.  I think even non horse people will love this one!   Suz

I’m sorry but I can’t put a link to the designs Laura used.  Joseph Picarella decided he didn’t want any more designs based on his artwork sold even though I paid him royalties on every sale and per our agreement – Suz

John’s method to prevent puckering

I am sending a couple of photos of wall hangings I have done on felt without any puckering. One uses 5 designs to make a large 16 x 23 inch one,   and one uses 6 designs to make a large 12 x 15 inch one.

I only hoop a piece of Stitch n Tear stabilizer by itself, adhering it to the inside of the inner hoop ring with sturdy 2 sided sticky mounting tape. The felt is held in place using a conservative amount of spray adhesive. I use the minimum amount of tension in the bobbin, around 12 – 15 grams and the upper tension just enough to bring the stitch thread to clear the throat plate and let the stabilizer alone drag the thread to the next stitch. When you are done the fabric does not want to return to an original non tension state and remains stable.

Tutorial – Fairy Wildlife Quilt – Part 1

This quilt uses the three Design Sets of the Fairy Wildlife Series.  I am making a lap size quilt, but you can easily adjust the sizes.  My main purpose in this Tutorial is to show you an easy way to create a unique and fun design.  This first part does what I call the Ocean slice.

Sandra’s Myth and Mystery in White

Sandra totally surprised me by stitching Myth and Mystery on a white Jean jacket.  But wow – I love the way she looks.

From Sandra: Wanted to tell you I stitched the Myth and Mystery gal on the back of a white jeans jacket.  Absolutely gorgeous.  Her face, particularly her eyes, are mesmerizing.  Hope you’ll digitize more large format designs like that. I have a stack of blue jeans jackets waiting for your special designs.  Hint…hint

I will Sandra!

Unfortunately the back had 2 French seams but it’s still beautiful. – Sandra
