Default Ender's Garden (my latest project)

Our state quilt guild had their spring meeting this past weekend with a nationally known teacher. I took one of her classes and couldn't resist hedgie-izing my project.

For you quilters out there, she teaches fusing. This was my first fusing project. The theme of the glass was the Garden of Eden, hence the name Ender's Garden. It's not totally finished.

Wow I love the colours.

What exactly is fusing and how do you do it?

Thanks guys! The fabric she had was hand-dyed and had some awesome color to it.

Fusing is a art quilt making process where you iron some heat-activated material to the back of your fabric, cut it up, place it on other fabric in whatever design you want and then "set" it with your iron again so it's glued to the fabric. That's a really really basic description. It was pretty fun. The next step is to embellish it with embroidery stitches (the mealies may get legs), and do the layering/quilting part.
