Hand Printing

I am so glad I signed up for this swap! I spent much longer than necessary thinking about it.  Which also means I’m a day late sending my fabric out.  I once turned in a project late in one of my Design classes in college.  And I’ve never forgotten what my professor said.  “If everyone had had as much time as you, they could have created something as outstanding.”  This was stated in front of the entire class.  I think she was trying to stress that meeting deadlines was an important part of being a designer/artist… and that even if your design is great it won’t matter in the real world if you can’t get it turned in on time.

Thankfully this is not a paying job, and hopefully my recipients won’t mind getting it a day later.  I tried some things out on a test piece, and I actually like the random patterns on it.  The upper designs were done with a stamping technique and the clouds were done using freezer paper stenciling.

Here are the final results for the swap.  I have plenty of fabric though and plan to continue my experiments!

    Beautiful! I love the two circle shapes together in the random pattern; it’s so cool how the gray and the yellow give a completely different vibe. And it looks like you had a lot of fun with each piece.

    those are so so so so cool! You never cease to amaze me 😉

  7. These are stinking amazing! I am still in love with the circles on the yellow, but love more now since you added the other circle pattern. And how awesome is the ombre-esque cloud print?! That would be an amazing center or back panel on a childs quilt! I personally forgive you for taking extra time and allowing the creative process to happen organically. Good job, lady!
