I am back from Houston and the International Quilt Festival. I am still processing what that trip meant for me–it truly was sensory overload. When my synapses calm down, I might try and write about it.
But for now, I am going to do what I promised the wonderful quilters who visited me while I demo-ed at the Craftsy Open Studios. I’m going to share here what I shared there.
I don’t actually paint on my quilts, but I do use my rotary cutter in the same way a painter uses a brush. The demo was called Painting with a Rotary Cutter. I thought the name was rather clever. I actually tricked some visitors into thinking that I might really dip my cutter into paint.
During the prep work for this demo, I got really excited. Not only can we paint with our rotary cutters, we can also take solid fabrics and make prints! Here I am waving my arms around about how exciting this all is.
