I don’t know if I ever mentioned why I fuse my quilts.
It has become so much of what I do I don’t think about the reasons anymore.
But maybe you would like to hear my reasoning.
I really, really, like the freedom fusing gives me in creating imagery.
I started out as a traditional quilter. Piecing and hand quilting.
But I kept getting ideas that just didn’t translate well with traditional pieced methods.
I begin to create these ideas with my own hand dyed fused fabrics.
I was just too impatient to hand turn my applique. And come on these are pieces that are going to hang on a wall not be laid on a bed.
Why oh why did I have to finish the edges. The fused applique if applied correctly isn’t going to come unstuck and I don’t NEED or WANT to wash my art.
So there it is in a nutshell, fast, efficient and fun. Liberated quilting.
If it isn’t fun you shouldn’t do it!! That’s my motto and I’m sticking (pun) to it!
Happy Monday.Press ON!
