About 30 years ago, I was an ARTEX representative. We had home parties and painted on fabric and other media with a ball point paint tube. There were other brands also, including one called Vogart. I don’t know if this product is available today. The principle was the same – you stretched the fabric you wanted to paint on in an embroidery hoop and followed the lines of a printed embroidery pattern. I did a fifty block collection of the 50 United States. Each showed an outline of the state, the state bird and flower, a star for the location of the capitol, and the order in which they became a part of the US.
I have finally decided to finish the quilt. Each block was only 10″ square, so I had to add some printed blocks here and there to make it come out a correct size for a quilt. I decided to quilt it in sections, so sewed the blocks together into nine sections that would be easily handled to quilt in a large embroidery hoop.
After all the sections are completed, you sew them together until you have the finished quilt. The photos shown will, hopefully, represent what I am talking about. I am starting with the center section, (photo on left), and will keep you informed as to my progress.
