    Has anyone done a quilt using texture magic in it?

    I recently was introduced to this and think it would look good in a quilt, but don't have the experience to figure it out. Has anyone used it? I think it would have a nice textural design to the quilt.

    It's pretty pricey to use for a whole quilt. I have done some small project , and it is certainly fun to play with.

    I haven't used it in a quilt but I did use it in a purse. It is expensive and would get costly for a quilt.

    I have some I bought a year ago. I 'm thinking that it would be good for appliques on quilts - maybe trees, etc.

    I used it in a purse (shop sample). It's fun to work with...kinda spooky when you shrink it with an iron. Be sure to use plenty of steam. Tip: DON"T touch the iron to the Texture Magic or you'll have a huge mess!

    I saw a quilt in a shop that they did some of the blocks with texture magic. They chose a particular fabric, did the process and them that block was scattered through out the quilt. I thought it was nice, but not budget minded.

    Interesting stuff! Wonder if you could get the same effect, by either fusing or stitching a piece of muslin or something to the fabric, then shrinking it.

    I used it to make a purse also. Fun to work with but I would think to expensive for a whole quilt.

    I did shrink flowers out of organza for my dgd's first communion dress (on an overskirt). They were really awesome! If you use some pretty fabric, stipple or grid stitch it, then shrink it, you can cut it into pieces to scatter into the quilt. Would be a great feature! I don't know why you would put muslin in, you aren't actually shrinking the fabric, only the stailizer under the fabric, and muslin wouldn't shrink like that (at least not uniformly). Go for it...use it sparingly, it is pricey, but would be a wonderful look, I can even envision it in a crazy quilt!

    I have taken a cooling rack ... the kind with the small square like openings ... used a pencile and pushed my fabric through all the holes. Then I placed a piece of fuseable on the flat side and ironed it on. It made a great textured piece of fabric which I the used to make a purse. Useing this method, it wouldn't be too expensive to use it for or in a quilt. Great for art quilts too.
