    wax paper is not for sandwich when there is an art quilter around

    Hi ladies, I have been playing with wax paper, paints, stencils, stamps and other papers to create fabric paper as a new media for background for art quilts. So sit back enjoy and tell me what you think.
    thanks

    And I am still back trying to get brave enough to put some fabric on freezer paper and do some copies of things just to try out making a quilt that way. Geesh, this work here is true art work. Not sure what you mean by fabric paper
    for art quilts. Maybe you could splain it a little clearer for the slowest of the slow, Me.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!
