Day 3 of blind quilt challenge

okay fiber.chicas! are you ready for a whopper day?! ;) here we gooo.....

take a pair of scissors and carefully CUT UP YOUR PIECE! ;) yes, you read it right. cut it up. you must cut into it AT LEAST 5 times! ;) you can cut strips, circles, puzzle shapes... whatever you want to do... but keep in mind that you are going to be sewing it back together into a NEW shape!...

so after you have cut your one piece into at least 6 pieces... arrange them onto a backing fabric, in a new way...and tack them down with pins, fusible web, or a glue stick, then sew them to the backing fabric. (she says you are making it back into one piece no backing showing just something to reassemble together}
have FUN!!! remember... you can hold your breath if this is really hard for you...don't think about it, just dive, gently! ;)

NOW this is scary....mine will be up later ekk can I do it omg

Day Two:.... layer your cloth onto a piece of batting, felt, or similar and machine stitch all over with contrasting or complimentary threads.

(optional - layer some organza on top first, then machine stitch all over 3 layers with rayon thread... then using your burning tool, melt away the spaces of organza between the stitches.)
