So finally this was my attempt at creating a cheater quilt using freezer paper (I originally had the fabric cut the size of a cot quilt, but considering I started this at 11 last night it was quickly downsized!
It's basically a whole lot of wonky strips cut with a rotary cutter & ruler, straight from the roll.
As is generally the case, I was in such a rush to get this done (due to equal doses of excitement & tiredness) that I didn't worry too much about getting perfect corners, I figured the bold print would encourage viewing from a distance rather than up close.
The trusty dish washing sponge (not the grungy one from the sink) worked fine for printing, if you don't mind a red finger.
And the result, I'm pleased with how this turned out & it was way faster than Max's original quilt which seemed to take forever.
Lessons learned from this freezer paper adventure:
- divide your fabric up into squares & work on each one individually
- ironing on the bumpy rug in the lounge doesn't give the best results
- fabric paint comes of new laundry bench tops surprisingly easily!
