A new quilt top

The quilt top is ready. Finally, it turned out more pink than turquoise, as I first intended to do it.
Here's a close-up...
I took the next shot when I was putting the strips together.
Next is a picture of the pretty little scraps...
Now, I must quilt it. And I still have to quilt this one too.
The quilts will be called "Kabuki 1" and "Kabuki 2". (I should explain why in another post!)

Strange weather

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the garden. It felt almost like summer.
"En avril, ne te découvre pas d'un fil"... I know the adage, but really, it was great.
Today, it's another story... We lost at least 10 degrees during the night, and now it's raining cats and dogs.
This morning, I finished cleaning the studio. It's not perfect, but it's much better.
Then, I worked on my new quilt.
I pinned some fabrics on the design wall. I have to overprint a few of the screen-printed pieces, but I'm rather pleased with this palette of colours.

Springtime, almost...

Here's a mosaic of some prints I did last week...
The weather has been cold and grey here, but there are some lovely hints of springtime in the garden...
The prints in the mosaic were all made on decorated paper, but today I also spent some time printing on fabric...

A new quilt

I made a first quilt top with the fabrics I screen-printed last month. It's about 40 cm by 60 cm.
Here are some close-up shots.

I haven't decided yet how to quilt it. I plan to do another quilt, but first I must print more fabric.

In the meantime, I've been playing with Provence fabric scraps.

More fabric prints

I had a good printing session yesterday.
Here are some of the results...

There are at least four layers of printing in each piece.
Today, I'm going to iron them, and then off to the cutting table and the design wall, and maybe also the sketching pad.

Back in the studio

Last week, I printed some fabric samples. I tried a couple of new thermal screens and also used a few other printing techniques. I'm pleased with the results.
I'm working on two new quilts. A new series maybe.
And I think I'll need to dye more blue-green fabric soon.
