With extra time on our hands (our slow season in t-shirt printing!), my husband and I have been making good use of our time and have been being creative!

Gregg has been out in the print studio working away on hand-printed fabric! It all starts with coming up with some imagery. For this run, he printed the words: “the shortest distance between two points of view is love”, an arrow between the words “you” and “me”, and a bunch of little hearts.
Here is a screen with a bunch of little hearts on it… and some pink ink – I’ve talked about the process of screen printing here before with a little more detail here. Printing fabric is a difficult thing and takes a lot of time due to the limited area coverage of our screens.

He ended up with some really fun fabrics… what do you think? I’m ready to use them in some quilts already – but, Gregg said he’s been thinking of trying his hand at the sewing machine, and that he would like to try to make a quilt using his own printed fabrics!! Wouldn’t that be neat? I’m trying to be as encouraging as I can 🙂
