I received a ridiculously awesome set of prints from Sarcastra today!! She said that I lobbed her some softballs with my theme suggestions of aliens, crop circles, and eyes, and I am so happy for it. The printing is so crisp and clean, I am super impressed.





I've decided that I'm going to start a collection of hand printed fabrics and when I have enough, I'm going to make an art quilt with them. Anyone else want to join in?  Cheesy

Thank you so much Sarcastra! Those prints are awesome!!

Wow those eyeballs are amazing!!!

You're not wrong the prints are totally crisp and the opacity of the white on black looks great!

Im totally going down the quilt making road. If anyone has left over prints from this id love to do extra swaps!

I received from sheepBlue yesterday!

She did a tasteful blending of a couple of my themes for each one.

An undertakers and embalmers print ad in charcoal on a dappled goldenrod color.
But wait, there's more!


Yes! Violet bird skulls and flame flies on a shale fabric with citrine dots.

They look AMAZING! I couldn't have made up such a perfect combination of all my favorites. 

But, I have one bone to pick with you! In your questionnaire, you called your skill level "intermediate" and that is a lie! These fabrics are perfect. They could be store bought from a fine LQS with factory QA stamped on them! As evidence of this, here's a thing that happened last night. I'd been at a quilting shop hop during the day and when I got home, I laid out my purchased fabric on one of my workshop tables. When I checked my mailbox, I had the package of FQs - I unwrapped them and laid them out beside the purchases and got out my camera. My husband wandered in to the workshop and looked at all the fabrics together - I was quietly watching to catch his reaction. He reached out his hand and ran it over the sheepBlue FQs then said, "wow, I didn't think the quilt shops would have fabric like this." Then I explained that they were the hand printed ones and he was impressed with the skill.
Seriously, you have the skill. You are no "intermediate", I think.

Thank you so very much, sheepBlue. I've already begun pulling other fabrics from the stash and planning some more prints to add to these for some projects, so far a quilt and a bag. They are both stellar and I love them!

Aww, I'm so flattered by your beautiful words. We're all our own worst critics, and I am certainly not an exception.  Smiley I had so much fun thinking up what to do for you, and love that we had so much in common. No doubt I'll be printing more FQs and whatnot for myself using these same prints.

Here's a close-up of the text so it's easier to read..
