Project Description

What are you most proud of? The spontaneity of it... I mostly work in neutrals and classic designs, so this was fun for me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun!

What you will need

  • I pieced 1-1/2 strips of various batiks together for my background fabric. I used various cords and ribbons for the couching
  • and Isacord embroidery thread for all the decorative stitching. I'm not quite done filling in the background quilting
  • but this is going to be the front of a project bag (tote) when I'm finished.

Q&A with CJ Tinkle

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Beautiful! Thanks for posting. i will try to find the Hoopsisters Battilizer. Was this easy to hand embroider through?
CJ Tinkle answered:
I skipped the hand embroidery Carol Ann, I don't do anything by hand! There is zero puckering with the Battilzer, try it I think you will like it! Thanks for a most inspirational class!

What is Hoopsisters Battilizer? How do you use it and what does it do? I guess I'm asking how is it different from the fusible interfacing that we've been using for our Stupendous Stitching?
CJ Tinkle answered:
http://www.hoopsisters.com/battilizer-5-yards/ Battlizer is batting and stabilizer combined into one product.
