May it begin!
Thought I’d make a page here, so that everyone can stay updated if they fancy and so that I can add stuff as we go along with the project.
You can download the square template at the bottom.
I’ve been working with 3 templates. I use lighter paper when I pin the square with fabric and cut around it. I use a thicker paper as a matrix to trace around on paper for sketches. The third square is the blue one you see in the following photo. I never use that on fabric, because it doesn’t have seam allowance.
TRANSFERRING METHODS TIPS
1. If transferring text: always use the carbon paper method.
2. If transferring from paper to fabric: trace it on tracing paper first, then use the design on tracing paper to transfer it to fabric with either the tissue paper method or the carbon paper method.
Coming next: I’ll be adding a template for the whole quilt. I think I have worked out a plan for it. It’s taken me a little while.
And I will upload some design templates too, if any of you has spare time to obsess over embroidery and quilting.
I believe some of you have not used cotton from shirts, maybe? But that’s ok. If it happened that the fabric was wrong we can save the embroidery by turning your design into a patchwork. In fact, it might look super cool. Honestly.
Another source of fabric could be old bedsheets and pillow cases.
