How to Make a Blue Chip Chair Day 2


Welcome to day 2 of our on going series of How to Make a Blue Chip Chair. In yesterday's exciting post we made the master pattern for our bodacious blue chip chair by tracing a projected image of the chair onto white paper. Today we'll begin building that giant chair out of hand dyed silk. Yum!

Use a hand dyed cotton, silk, or washed batik fabric for your chair. This is best because the color penetrates all the way through the fabric. (When making a fused art quilt, you don't finish the edges of the elements with stitching so you see the fabric edges.)
Fuse all the fabric needed for your chair using Wonder Under #805 following the directions that come with the web. After the fabric cools remove the paper in one sheet. Save this paper! This release paper is needed for pattern transfer from the Master Pattern.

Stay tuned for further instruction tomorrow. Meanwhile, talk amongst yourselves.

These are wonderful and just in time for the making of a baby quilt. A bit of different process but mostly the same!
