Mad Scientist in the Sewing Room or Laura Wasilowski Day
Boy did I have fun today. One of my favorite quilt artists is Laura Wasilowski. I was fortunate enough to meet her and see her quilts in person when I was hosting the TQS Treasure Chest on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. I have one of her books and decided it was time to give it a go.
First I pulled out all my batiks and hand dyed fabrics. This is the mad scientist coming out. I got carried away. I of course also used my Accuquilt studio cutter for the oak leaves, flowers and little bugs. You'll see.
I started out with little strips of fabric with fusible web on the back.
For the few of you that read my blog www.bunnyrose.com you know I'm in love with my Accuquilt studio cutter. So I went to my dies and found this.
Accucut site instead of the Accuquilt site to find this one. It's not cheap but I have used it in soooo many things.
Anyway, this is what my weaving looked like after I cut it out.
Made a bug.
Here is my almost finished project.
Here are two other projects I am working on.
