hand painted fabric -fabric friday

gelli plate printed fabric

One reason I love my Gelli Plate, is that left over paint from another project can be quickly turned into this within minutes.

Have a good weekend.

String block bound.

art quilting

String block bound. Non quilters would be perplexed by that sentence, small though it is. 
It is not dead straight but not far off the 12 in square that it should be, despite all that stitching and I quite like that gentle curve on the bottom edge :')

I have fiddled with these photos to try and compensate for the lack of light and ended up with two different colour sheds!

I have been dragging my feet over the next block in this series. It involves EPP, which I don't mind in principle, but do I have the time.....?

**This is part of my own personal challenge to create and learn a bit more about traditional quilt blocks while adding my own twist, as described here. I am following the free Block of the Month classes on Craftsy as my guide.

Still playing with Inktense pencils!
I wasn't happy with this photo but when I tried to take another I couldn't find the fabric.
Time for another clear up me thinks!

Landscape Quilting

Back in 2012 I did a number of posts on creating different backgrounds for landscape quilts.

I recently got around to completing one of those backgrounds.

As you can see I didn't restrict myself to just thread to get the look I was after, using water soluble crayons to add some finishing touches.
