In answer to Maria’s colour question

Last time, I posted my prints on Instagram and Facebook, Maria asked about the colours in my printingmaking. We talked about it on Saturday. She felt I haven’t established a colour palette – she is right I haven’t. My quilts are made with colours I like working with and can easily dye to order. Printing inks have proved more difficult for me to work with. I want mucky colours, not clear colours and I am having trouble mixing them right. I need to find a week where I do nothing else but print!!! Yea, right!! But I know it won’t work till I find that time.

In the meantime, I have been cutting up designs I don’t think have merit as a whole. Cut up I can often find bits I really like. A bit like using “L” corners to isolate good bits of a design. I started stitching into them. The first ones are quite crafty.


And now I have one which has the potential to be made into a quilt.
