Adventures in Discharging - We have a winner - Gerrie got it!!!



Black cotton sateen ~ potato masher dipped in my special discharge potion and applied to the cloth ~ splatters, too, because of the wayward drips ~ This turned out so well, I'm thinking, "just quilt it."

The first person to guess what my secret is will receive something special in the mail! C'mon, give it a try!

THE SECRET'S OUT - IT'S CLEANSER WITH BLEACH!
KEEP CHECKING BACK FOR A QUICK TUTORIAL AND MORE ADVENTURES - COMING SOON ~
Gerrie Congdon
guessed correctly, and she gets to choose a Wrist Pin Cushion- congratulations, Gerrie...

Oops, I got sop excited I forgot to say- this looks GREAT! I don't see that shape of potato masher over here - we just seem to have round ones with square holes in them... hmmm!

Julaine Lofquist-Birch said...

Sorry, Teresa, try again, okay? - is it you and your husband that might be coming to Rockford? That's where I live...

Dale Anne said...

I'm thinking your secret is that Quilting Arts or Cloth Paper Scissors wants you to do another article for them!

LOVE your discharged piece!

Softscrub with Clorox?

Rayna said...

THIOX.

Julaine Lofquist-Birch said...

Dear Rayna and QuiltingFitzy,
You both had great guesses, but...

Here's a hint for all of you: it is made from something you find in the cleaning section of the grocery store...you can make it thick or drippy!

Gerrie said...

Did you add water to the powdered cleaner - I forget what they call it because I don't buy or use cleaning products - my dh does that!

Julaine Lofquist-Birch said...

We have a winner!!! Gerrie figured out my little secret - it's cleanser with bleach. I hope to post some pix of other pieces I'll be doing and giving some info.

Gerrie - send me your snail mail address, okay?

We don't have that here in NZ - but we DO have bleach gel toilet cleaners, and these are what I use for discharge in my Surface Design class.

Teresa said...

Oh, I would have guessed the cleanser with bleach, but I thought that was what Sue B said. I thought it was the same thing. Rats, I could have been right.

Yes, but not quite right on the Rockford thing. My son might be coming there to work for the Rockford IceHogs, via the Chicago Blackhawks. Maybe we might meet up. I was there briefly last week.
