I thought I would show you how I'm going to do the words for the race horses & elephant. First printed the words using #28 font and Engravers MT lettering, then used the CHACOPAPER (found this at Hobby Lobby). Layer the fabric on bottom then the tracing paper with the printed words on top. Next draw over each letter which will transfer onto fabric. When this is done I did go back over each word with SEWLINE pen with white lead to make it a little darker. I have been refering to the actual quilt top printed in the 'QUILTS Masterworks from the American Folk Art Museum' book and using Threadbear's pattern. I plan on using the pictures from the book for part of my labels plus my own info on a label. Now I'm ready to start doing the embroidery hand work, I know people could do this on sewing machine but then it would take the fun out of it and I like the looks of hand work. I have finished the block with the turkey & rooster but will post again when I get this row finished and attached to other rows. If you look in upper right corner are the next four blocks cut and ready to go...I'm glad I have this all cut out as I'm going to a quilt retreat down to Missouri close to the Arkansas border next week for 4 days. Probably won't post again until I get back and see how much I get accomplished.
