. . . a quilt with landscapes? Well, that's what I ended up with here:
This sweet quilt "Bubbly Babies" by Annie Unrein was the first time I ever used Texture Magic. I have seen it used on bags, totes, animals, but this quilt kit was in a fabric store in Utah a couple years ago and it really looked interesting.
I inserted my guide and set it for 3/4 inch to stitch a grid pattern. A 9 inch block of The Texture Magic is stitched to the back of a 9 inch cotton fabric block.
Here is the Texture Magic on the back of the fabric. It looks and feels like taffeta.
Stitching up all 10 of these took almost as long as piecing the entire quilt!
Here is the back after a thorough steaming. No touching the fabric with the iron, only hovering with the steam.
Now the 9 inch block has shrunk to roughly 7 inches. I then proofed them to 6.5 inches.
A 6 inch block was too big to just leave unquilted, so after ditching the seams, I just sewed an X in the center.
It makes an interesting surprise when you see the quilt close up.
