Distracted

When I started teaching free pieced letters back in 2010, I wanted to also teach my students to look at their fabrics more closely so they could use them more effectively.




I wrote a power point presentation for the class, and up until now I've only used it for teaching, but since using my fabrics differently than anybody else is my trademark, I think it's time to share it.


So I'm adding to it, and modifying and expanding the commentary and otherwise getting it ready to be my next Tutorial.


So I have taken a slight detour from the scrappy slab triangles to work on the new tutorial.
(And I am watching the tennis in Australia!)

I'll let you know when it's finished, and it will be for sale on Etsy as an instant download when it is ready.

Yes, what a great use of the fabrics in the lettering. One of my goals of this year is to practice getting some crisp letters. I feel like i am starting over with just about everything. Thanks!

Blue eyes, warm fire, brown coffee, and more, what great innovative ways.

Distraction can be a very good thing.
