I found it hard to stop, once I got started. So, I have lots of new fabric to play with (or trade or whatever)!
These are the ones I mailed off to Bitter Betty today for the swap-
1. pears printed on light blue- this is showing half of the fat quarter. It is folded lengthwise.
2. Orange spirals and baby faces- also folded.
3.Green and black, Baby faces, folded fabric-
4. Flower babies printed on light blue-
5. and on off-white with different spacing-
6. Red birds, green leaves, light blue background-
I have the other half of the fat quarter of most of these. I sent the ones that didn’t have the mistakes!
Then there are these-
The bugs faded quite a bit when I washed them, so now they are mine. In general I wasn’t too happy with the ones I printed on the green Kona cotton. The colors must not have absorbed well, because all of them were a bit faded after washing.
I liked this one so much that in the end, I decided to keep it.
even after I’d printed up more in various color and image combinations! I am thinking about cutting up some of these for patches or ribbons.
these too- ribbons or strips-
These are odd sized test pieces and use up the ink/paint pieces. I won’t have any problem finding uses for these non-standard shapes.
and lastly, I needed fabric like this for my applique work-
I am so glad I decided to participate in the swap- just the incentive I needed to get me started. This is a crazy week though. Isn’t it always that way when we get back from vacation? I am having my workshop this coming weekend at my house- that means I have to clean up space to do it in! I’ve got lots of things on my mind and lots of things I haven’t had a chance to blog about yet, so if you are wondering why you haven’t heard from me, that’s why. If I owe you an email, write again. I might have lost it. Now, back to cleaning up!
