First, I wanted to create some fabric sets for Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery. The jury for the Holiday Show is tomorrow. I printed up some smaller pieces of colorful fabric. I decided to call each set a Deconstructed 9-Patch. There's enough fabric for a miniature 9-patch quilt including the binding. They were fun to make but if I decide to enter them on a continuing basis, I will have to come up with a more efficient way to make them.
I also spent a great deal of time working on the project for the next issue of Julie B Booth Surface Design News. The next issue (#7) comes out on Saturday, November 24. It's a multiple step project and the fabrics are now covered with a flour paste resist and need to dry completely before the next step. I'm looking forward to seeing how the fabrics turn out and part of the project is using the fabrics to wrap things up. If you would like to subscribe, it's very easy.

Oh yes...I haven't forgotten...the names went into the hat and my husband pulled out the piece of paper...that said Ersi. Congratulations! You are the winner of the Violet Challenge Fabric.
Now it's back to work!
Awesome! Congrats to Ersi!ReplyDelete
By the way, where are spending Thanksgiving? Guess where I'll be?
I'm hoping you're going to say down here in the D.C. area...I'll be here.Delete
Your 'Deconstructed 9-Patch' sets are gorgeous! I love the details of the 'band' and button, and they make a stunning collection all grouped together...I can only imagine how much time it took to get them all finished. And I can relate to what you mean about needing a more efficient way to produce multiples - this always seems to be a challenge in and of itself. Good luck!
Looking forward to seeing your latest newsletter...
Oh Lisa- I'm sorry to have missed this comment...which seems to have been hung up in "moderation" Thanks so much. I am trying to reconcile the fact that in my co-op gallery, I think finished products have more value (vs. the "raw" materials of printed fabric). I'm not sure if customers know what to think of fabrics...no matter how beautiful. I am still trying to find my "new" way with all this...Delete
This is amazing and thank you so much, Julie! You seem to bring me great luck. And then the postman brings me your wonderful fabric prints. I can't wait to have this one in my hands, it's absolutely beautiful!ReplyDelete
I'm so pleased that you won the Challenge fabric...I know it will be heading off to a wonderful home!
Ok, my excitement over winning made me forget to say that those new designs of yours are very lovely. I especially love the one in orange-teal green tones.ReplyDelete
Hi Ersi- Just like Lisa's comment, yours was "stuck" in "comment purgatory"! I'm so glad you liked the new fabrics. I am still trying to figure out where all this is going...Delete
