Loralie Designs Meets HeatnBond.

10 Aug

When I receive a new bolt of Loralie Designs panels quite often the top and/or bottom row is unusable as a panel as they are not often cut completely straight before rolling. I have made a few crazy patch quilts with them. This covers up any missing bits as you can see but what I really needed was to use up odd panels not whole quiltsworth.

When I was trying to decide what to do with the Gypsy Chique (not my spelling) fabric I watched a video by Loralie. In it she used the no sew version of fusible web to fuse figures onto another surface.(I use HeatnBond Ultra) You can see these in my blog on the fabric. In case you are in a hurry this is what the finished bag looked like.

IMG_0093I was sorting through my ‘reject’ pile the other day and came across more panels that I could use in this way. I had also kitted up some cot quilts when I first opened the web shop and I saw that the colours in one of these were perfect to use with the panels. These panels are from the ‘Fast women Portrait’ collection and the fabrics mostly from Benartex fossil ferns. They matched perfectly and used up most of the kit in three bags which will now take pride of place on my stall at The Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate (4th to 6th September).

They work really well and in my case help me avoid my temperamental machine that does not seem to like satin stitch. It is also a good way of using some of the Loralie panels that are actually rows of fairly large figures such as the Gypsy Chique and also one you can see in my next blog about Kitty Kitty Christmas.

Preview.

IMG_0018It is all getting a bit seasonal on here so I will go and draft a proper Christmas blog as you need to start now if you are going to make Christmas goodies.

Maybe I will see you at Harrogate. It is a really good show. Take it from someone who drives 6 hours to get there every year. The layout will be a bit different this year if you are looking for your favourite stalls. The reason is that they are replacing the old hangar type building with a proper one so this year we are in a temporary building whilst they finish it. I will be more or less in the same place as before but as they have moved the quilts to the other end you might need a minute to acclimatise before the onslaught.
