In the meantime, playing again! I was watching an old video from Laura Kemshall on using discharge paste and I just happened to have some on hand! So what quilt could I use the paste on!! Last fall I made a table runner (see that post here) and it just called me to play with it.
This was the table runner before the paste!
I used a small foam brush to apply the paste, let dry, then ironed over the paste (with window open!)
Waiting for the paste to dry...which doesn't take long....
I still have to wash out the past but I do like the effect on the leaves. If I had to do over I might just do the leaves and let the rest of the piece as is...but it looks good and who knows...I may just cover it with some more past instead of the 'lines'....
The background color is actually brighter than what appears in this picture. But I'm happy and Bob still hasn't noticed! HA So I guess it's not that bad!
We also had an overnight visitor Saturday! Ron, Bob's son, was in a bike race not far from us and he took 1st place! Woohoo!!
It was really nice to have Ron for dinner and just to sit and talk Saturday night. He left by eight Sunday morning to head over to Holland to pick up MaryJo who was visiting her dad. Then they were heading back to Indiana! A lot of driving for him but so nice to have the time with him!!!
I have started to work on my 12" squares for another exchange...these are due in September but I'm not sure how much I'll be able to do come surgery time! So I best get busy!!!
