In a Word... Well now, that word for me, spells Trouble I am afraid!
Who's afraid of them cops????
Not me! After all, I'm just a sweet lil ole lady. Harmless at that!
Ahhhhhh yes, break out your rattle cans and lets spray paint a building!! After all, who would ever suspect little ole ladies like us!!!!!!! Am I right??? LOL!!
Is this just the cutest pattern you have ever seen? Somehow it managed to get lost in my sewing room and I went on "quite" a mission to find it. It's from Jukebox Quilts (it's linked for you). They are the ones who did that "great" quilt pattern of the guys sleeping on a bench in front of the quilt shop. I'm sure you've all see it. Their patterns sure make me laugh. Especially this one!
For the spray painted building, they suggested using Tsukineko markers, but I decided to give colored pencils a try. (mostly cause I had them on hand) There was a little trick to it, that I will share in case you decided you have to "paint" a building or two yourselves. Now, you know I will deny I ever told you a thing if you get caught!! hehehe
First I transferred the design onto my fabric with a pencil.
That gave me some stability when coloring.
(gotta love the shadow of me taking the photo)
Keep the iron close by. I found I was needing to re-fuse the layers frequently.
Finish it all off with quilting that makes it look like a brick wall.
So there you have it.
A self portrait of a Senior Delinquent!
But really officer it wasn't me!
My give-a -way is going to be a copy of this pattern for your very own.
Leave me a comment, and you must be a follower for this one!
I will pick my winner on Wednesday Jan 16th, the last day of the hop!
Good luck to you all!
And for heavens sake, keep out of trouble!!
A big round of applause to our wonderful hostess, the "lovely lalalala" Linda, who worked tirelessly, to keep us all in line. And of course, that Energizer Bunny Madame Samm. I know she stays awake nights dreaming up more fun blog hops for us. I sure like the way her mind works!
