I´m T-J from Finland and started embrodering over my artwork in summer 2011. I make airbrushing on fabrics, leather etc.
As a former goldsmith I like to work with hands so via good lucky news from my eldest daughter, I started to do quilting two months ago.
It´s a baby-quilt with four different cotton and elastan fabrics and 12 embrodered pictures I made.
I found a very good material for a badding. It is meant to be used as a filterpad in big painting halls where they paint ships. It is fireproof and safe to breathe through, and most of all, it´s cheap.
I use 3M sprayglue to make a sandwich. Same stuff I use with my stencils in airbrushing.
Now I have a plan to go on with quilting. I would like to mix airbrushing on fabrics with embroidery and finally quilting everything together.
Here in Finland we have zero longarm-machines so I have planned to get one from USA. Any ideas?
Let´s see what shall come up, quilting is really relaxing and fun.
With best regards,
