I created these pieces using Solar Fast paint and a negative that I printed onto transparency paper. I've done several posts on using Solar Fast and this is the negative I used to print onto a piece of fabric for each block.
I've already sent my squares out and they have all been received so I'm showing what I made. The due date isn't until September 1st but I have received Tommy's already - no surprise there! HA As soon as I receive the other two I will post those...until then this is what I sent out!
I used a commercial fabric for the border and a dark navy 1/4 strip and same navy for the binding.
Again, commercial fabric added for border and black fabric for the 1/4 strip and a black/white fabric for he binding. Lots of french knots. I used Lana thread by Madeira for all the hand stitching on each square.
Again, commercial fabric for the borders and binding was another black/white commercial fabric.
All of these squares are 12" SQUARE!! Funny, my friend and I were discussing how taking pics makes our pieces look crooked! These are square..honest!
Hope the folks who received their pieces also enjoyed the exchange! Look forward to what's next! HA
And this one I kept for myself as part of the exchange...you could or didn't have to make one to keep yourself.
This is Bob's favorite..
