Recently, there has been a new project in the mix. I have an idea that I want to see to fruition, but I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to get there. I plan to put an image over a finished quilt top using screen printing… but my plans keep changing as I move further through the process.
To start, I wanted a basic quilt top to use as test, so I have to make one. I decided to use the Anita’s Arrowheads technique to make blocks. It’s a really fun a quick technique to make this block
I changed my size to make the block a little bigger than her original… and after a test, I went into production mode.
A note as to fabric choices here… I found some Lucky Penny fabric on sale at Fabric Depot and decided it would work great for a saturated colorway. I am purposely choosing dark and saturated colors because the printing will be more visible that way. After bringing home these two patterned fabrics, I went through my solids to use to finish the top. I don’t have a huge stash, so the colorways are a little random, but I love how random things turn out, so I’m going with it.
|Even fabric scraps are pretty!|
After piecing these guys all together and doing some trimming, I have 22 blocks of which I only need 20 for a 4×5 block front.
