I've decided to make this an on-going gallery. I've been making more pillows. These are patchworks of a variety of fabrics, old and new, some of which I have block printed with my linocuts. The first one is a reduction print (carve, print, carve some more, print in a 2nd colour) of the moon reflected in the water:



with this back:


The second one is two zebras (the different varieties are Chevy's and Burchell's zebras) in black on red linen, with a spotted cheetah on turquoise print:

and this on the back:



(that's some Ikea fabric with some brown check fabric I got 2nd hand from a local designer selling off her excess).

Cheers!

I made another block printed pillow, so I thought I would add it to this thread. It's a nautilus linocut on silk with a patchwork of faux-bois and more marine-themed fabrics (~12.5" x 14.5" or 31.8cm  x 36.7 cm). Smiley

I liked the block-printed pillows you posted yesterday and these don't disappoint either.  Love the nautilus.
