This block from Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore” was staring at me from the design wall. It was saying: “Finish me! Finish me!” So I did.
I had not gotten around to adding the section to the front of the book. I was afraid it was going to be a little… fiddly. (Definition of fiddly: requiring close attention to detail : fussy; especially : requiring an annoying amount of close attention). It was!
Here is what I did. I ironed a piece of freezer paper to the back of the fabric that I was going to write “Album” on. I did this so the fabric would not slip around while I was writing on it.
Using my light box, I traced the word “Album” with a permanent marker.
I traced the finished line with a Frixion marker, so that line would eventually disappear.
Bruin likes to pay close attention to the details!
Next, I took the freezer paper template and ironed it to the back of the fabric with the writing on it. I used the line I drew with the Frixion marker to place the freezer paper template in the correct spot.
Once that was all done, I prepped the piece as usual.
Next, I prepped the beige piece…
….and here we go…An Officially Finished Block!
Til next time…
