Screen printing

Hello all. 
Hope you're well and have enjoyed the lovely weather we've had this weekend. 
I thought you might like to see the results of my screen printing at Bramble Patch yesterday. 
As you see I've used some of the fabrics I dyed at the last class. Some of the results are a little too subtle but I do have some ideas how to use them - and they will be used. I can see I've veered towards more subdued colours and not the bright ones I was aiming for - but luckily I can screen print at the next class too so I can put that right. But I'm pleased with the technique and am looking forward to the next class.
Hope you're all well and hope to hear from you.

Dyed fabrics



Hello all.
 I thought you might like to see the fabrics I've dyed before I screen print them on Saturday at my class with Bren. You'll have to wait and see what they look like then.

Trentham (well Uttoxeter really) 2010

Well, I've just had a great day out at the Trentham Quilt Show (although it was held at Uttoxeter Racecourse as the marque at Trentham collapsed under the weight of snow in February).
So I've taken lots of photos and posted them below for you all to have a look at. It's a great show - not too big - with lots of traders (yes I bought lots) - well worth the effort of visiting if you're local. 
So here are the photos. 
What do you think?
