A Work In Progress
The two images are from stamps that I carved and printed on fabric. The top one was printed on a cotton-polyester fabric and you can see how the ink pooled up and is splotchy compared to the bottom one printed on a 100% cotton fabric where it soaked right in more evenly. It is fun to work on these things and figure out how to repeat these effects.
This is the first time I've used zippers on the surface of a quilt and I really like how it looks, more texture, the addition of more design lines, a different weight to these lines added, and a mysterious possible functional purpose. Do they unzip for a reason?
