When dry, it can be cut, stitched, painted, foiled, stenciled and stamped like regular fabric. It is not washable but can be sewn into a wall hanging, journal book cover, labels, greeting cards, postcards, or other mixed media projects.

STRIP AND QUILT AS YOU GO
A great technique for all those left-over strips. Two techniques will be demonstrated, random multi-coloured strips on angle and one colour strips sewn in a round. We will also use scraps of fabric, batting and backing for borders and backing. Blocks are quilted as they are sewn. The sashing is the “trick.”
