    B-Nash Bonding Powder

    Does anyone have experience with the B-Nash bonding powder? I would like to make a quilt with my doggies face and use the small bits of fabric (maybe called crumbs) and the bonding powder. I was thinking that someone posted a workshop they had attended where the quilter made a picture of her dog. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    it would be a bit much for tiny bits like that..and if you pile them on top of each other..it will get STIFF as all heck..

    try fusing your fabric to some heat n bond featherlight, and then cutting it into the bits you need...like the SNIPPETS are done. less mess, less fuss!

    I have some but only used it a couple of times. In my opinion it is too messy and you almost have to scorch the fabric to get it hot enough. What you want to do is a method called Snippets. It's a lot easier using the Snippet way.
    Got fabric?

    I think you're thinking about the "confetti" quilts. Jan that posted the original topic has a web site (jandole.com( and the video is available, which I plan on getting as soon as I have some spare cash.

    I tried the B-Nash bonding powder on a project sample, a necklace, I was making. It was way too rigid! No one could have worn that necklace without having a big scar or cut on their neck.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    Will this be a quilt you are using or a wall hanging or the center section of a quilt used just for looks where flexibility is not necessay? If the flexibility is not necessary, then you can get outstanding results in depth perception, detail, even fur or hair detail using a glue stick and absolutely layer upon layer of tiny, tiny strips (1/16x1/2) of fabric. The depth of the fabric is necessary for the illusion of even more depth perception, and using the tiniest strips of fabric with the glue and twizzers will give detail that is more often found in paintings. It is time consuming and very satisfactoring, but will be fairly rigid when you are finished. You need all the other steps of confetti quilting, but the detail comes in the tiny, miniscular size of the fabric and the depth comes from the layers.
