School Daze with Giveaway

School is starting, and everyone could use some new supplies.  Including us quilters.  My Giveaway has that thought just in mind.

Ah, School Days, the thought brings back lots of memories, Good and Bad.  But when someone mentions School, I, for some unknown reason, think of those one room school houses.

 I drew my picture and traced it on to my fabric with a permanent marker.





You guessed it….this time I am not doing applique.  I decided to color in the design.  I got out my crayons, same kind that I used when I went to school.





I then took my time coloring everything in.





After it was all colored in, I took a clean piece of Terry Cloth Fabric and placed it on my ironing board.  Next, I placed my picture colored side down onto the Terry Cloth Fabric and very carefully (using a medium heat) I ironed the design into the fabric.  This takes away the wax and makes it completely washable safe.




When you are finished and you feel that there are places that you want darker.  Color again, then press again, till you get the picture that you are after.

Next, I cut my picture to a perfect 12 inch square.  Then cut 36,  2 inch blocks for the boarder.  I then layered  and quilted.  When I quilted this, I only quilted in the ditch of the boarder.  It is a small wall hanging and I also didn't want to take away form the colored picture.



Total size of my "School Daze"  is:   15 1/2 inch square.



OK,  Now for the GIVEAWAY…. Not only do I have something for School Daze, but I am celebrating having my web site for one year and my blog getting 100 followers.  YEAH!

So, here it is.  I am giving away 2, YES… 2 different items to 2 different lucky people.  The first lucky winner will receive  a book called “Bits and Pieces”  by Karen Costello Soltys.  It is a hardback book with 18 small quilting projects in 95 pages.  Each project is fully illustrated with detailed instructions.    It is a brand new book, never used, perfect condition. 


FRONT AND BACK OF BOOK





Second Giveaway is 40,  5 inch charm pack of the Perennial charm pack by Eleanor Burns.  There are 2 of each 20 fabric in her line.

Elisabetta said...

I really liked your tutorial, I think it's a great way to make a quilt with your kids drawings!
can you indly explain me what is the Terry Cloth Fabric (I live in Italy so maybe here this item has a different name) and after this process the drawing is completely washable? and the color stays there?
thank you so much
