Fiber Junkies met in Oct at Gen's house to continue to work on the technique of dyeing and printing with disperse dyes. The first meeting was to prepare/paint the papers, the second meeting do the transfer.
Whatever was painted on the paper appears on the fabric.
Here is one of Denny's masks on left and how she uses it on right. Denny is great at layering and layering. It's kind of addictive once you start. You can keep adding more and more color or patterning without changing the hand of the fabric.
I loved working with sheers, the upper right started with a background, a butterfly was added and then a tree on top of that (on right). The imagery and color is more subtle so it's hard to over do something.
Gen showed us a neat tool for machine quilting - on left you can barely see it as it's clear. It has a slit going down through the middle which is where you sew and can move it in an direction so the line is continuous. You need a special foot to use this tool. Gen is sewing on her right, loves this tool especially good for those of us who can't sew a straight line. Well I'm in!!
