"Tribal Print & Stitch" .....part 1...

As you know, I'm doing three "Quick & Easy" workshops at the Festival of Quilts this year.

They're called "Tribal Print & Stitch" and will be 1 hour long. (Times are in the right hand side bar.)

To state the obvious....

...we will be printing some "tribal" designs onto cloth and then begin to stitch it afterwards. (I say "begin" because there's not an awful lot of stitching going to happen in the time left after the printing has been done!)

I'm going to be using foam blocks that I've cut myself, alongside these beautiful wooden ones from Colouricious ...





...and, today, I've been having fun with some gorgeous colours and some sponges!









These have been married-up with some thin batting...

..and will be machine stitched first....

...then hand stitched and beaded afterwards.


AND

..(apparently) it's going to be warm and sunny for the next couple of days, so maybe I can stitch on the terrasse :-)
