November Mini

Surprise! I'm jumping in before the end of the month--

I loved it from the start! In August Barbara Brackman made a presidential campaign fabric of the Biden-Harris ticket and posted it on her Material Culture blog. One could print the image on pre-treated fabric using your printer but . . . 

. . . because I wanted to start right away, I decided to give it a try using Moda Bella white and plain old freezer paper. It took a couple of tries but this was the result. This print is not permanent but I was satisfied enough to move forward. Barbara's fabric is now available to purchase printed-to-order on so be sure to check it out :)

I centered the image on the front of a piece of patriotic star fabric, zig-zag stitched it down and cut the excess away on the back (above).   

The red border fabric says VOTE, VOTE, VOTE . . . an oldie by Judy Rothermel for Marcus. I did a 3/8" double fold binding which I cut 2-3/4" wide. It finishes at 13-1/2" x 15". 

The back before I added . . . 

. . . a little tag "Please Do Not Wash." 

Cynthia at wabi-sabi quilts has posted her November mini, Love Thy Neighbor. Don't miss it!  And I'm sure Wendy will be posting hers tomorrow along with links to more :)

Have a wonderful week!
