I recently received the Quilting Arts Gift Book/Magazine, and got together with a couple of friends I hadn't seen for ages, and we each made one of Helen Cowans' Snowflake Towers. As you can see, I had an awful job trying to photogragph it, inside.......
and/or outside! Anyway the Tower measures 4" across the bottom and just over 12" high (haven't got a 'half' on my keyboard!) It was great fun to make, but took a lot longer than one day, of course, and it uses Bonding Powder (Super Mend) a tub of which I've had for yonkses and never known what to do with. Subsequently I've discovered a free Tutorial on Fibre in-Formation called Foiling Fabric with Bonding Powder - now there's a coincidence. The other coincidence is one of my friends, who came down from Yorkshire, is booked in for a Workshop with Helen Cowans, in the New Year, and she has an idea it is to make a vessel!
I have a few bits left over from the original 'background' we constructed, so will post again when I have made some cards etc. I don't suppose the pix. will be any better though, the light bounces so much off the light fabrics to get much detail.
NB Further to the above, Helen has dropped by to look over my Tower, so to speak. Thanks Helen - you've made my day!
