Monoprinting

I was able to spend all day to day in a community centre in Manchester at a newly formed local group linked to the Contemporary Quilt Group of the UK Quilters Guild. We played all day at monoprinting. Well, actually most people payed for a couple of hours or so then worked on some sewing they brought but me - not good at stopping!  I was having FUN!


Here are a few of my favourites.


 If you want to see all the cloth I produced I have put a Flickr set together here of all the dry ones ( the last ones got carried home wet in layers of bin bags and are still drying upstairs. Now I have to make something with  them. I already have an idea......

Can't wait to see what you do with the fabrics you created. I'm also looking out for news of the next event - which hopefully I'll be free for!

You have some great fabric there. I like the black and orange combos especially.

You really can't stop can you ? :-))

Just been catching up: how clever are you to make your own fabric? That seals it - I am definitely going to commission you to do a quilt for my hallway.

Gorgeous kitchen!!!!!!!!!

And finslly, congratulations on the Twelve by Twelve book (including Dennis!!)

I love these fabrics!

I've just started doing monoprints on paper, and I'm a beginning quilter too, so of course I want to play at monoprinting fabrics now. May I ask what paint or dye you used?
