Creating Fabric Prints

Printing on Fabric is fun and easy to do – it is just as easy as printing your own photographs.

In this class you learn the fundamentals of capturing your image on a computer, printing the image on fabric, and then using the fabric in a simple small project that you can finish in a day (good small gift items). Think outside the box when chosing your object: use pressed flowers, leaves, nails, ribbons, scissors, that are scanned into your computer and create a jpeg file.

You spend the morning learning and preparing the image and the fabric for the printing process and then actually printing an image or two.  Carol also explains the use of TAP or Transfer Artist Paper to get an image on fabric.

The afternoon is spent using the printed fabric in a small project: a trivet or mug rug.  But of course, the printed fabric can be used in any number of ways (pictures below show a pillow, trivets and mugs rugs, and a table runner with the image of wedding flowers) – just let your imagination run wild

Spinning Trees

You may not notice all the extra fun touches in this quilt from a distance. Up close you can’t miss seeing that the pinwheels are made of prairie points. The charming trees are three dimensional also. Straight line or free motion quilting will make them further stand out from the background. 

Construction is surprisingly simple considering these great details. Choose your favorite Christmas fabrics and a beautiful border fabric to tie it all together. This is a fun quilt you’ll enjoy bringing out for the holidays year after year. Or, use your favorite colors for a quilt to use at the cabin every summer.

The finished quilt is 74″ x 74″.
