Great work what ever order it is done.
I am working on my Devore demonstration for September so trying to get the process in an orderly way.

The foundation for Mellow Yellow is prepped and fabrics chosen. I have come up with an idea for the third challenge. This will be a much faster project and number three will probably be done before number two.

Do let us know how much fun you've had. And perhaps you would like to join in on our swapping of fabrics. We have a lot of fun and it's so interesting to get packages from all around the world. Our current activity is 2015 Fabric Swap July to December. Just click on the link above this 'comment Wall' and you can join in the fun. Hope to hear more about your adventures

We're all ears and eyes - if you can share results that would be fun!  Enjoy FOQ - I went in 2012 to the vendors and the exhibits.  I usually do a lot of classes when I attend International Quilt Festival in Houston.  I have shared a bit about past ones here:

can you tell somehting about what you do in the class. I have 2 friends who left New Zealand today to go to the festival and I am a little envious.

Off to a surface design class at the UK Festival of Quilts.  I can't wait!

I have no way of opting you out of a msg that was sent to the entire group of 'surface design'. That would be something you would need to do. I'm sorry that my offer to win some 'surface designed' cloth was upsetting to you. I'm an active member here and just wanted to share some of the abundance that seems to accumulate. I hope this message finds you well. May the creativity in your mind be abundant.

I just received an email from a member of this group, that was a mass mailer. Please DO NOT send me messages like this. *I* get to choose who is allowed to contact me, and this is not the way.

(Second link has good directions but says alum is needed to make paint stay on fabric.  It seems wrong to me.  I would be hard pressed to get paint off fabric once it's dried.)

I didn't use alum, just heat set
