A Sea of Colorful Fabric Using 10 Techniques with Acrylic Inks

This was the scene on the floor before we broke for lunch on Saturday. Luckily we had a really big room. I spread out a 9′ x 12′ tarp and then added another 6 feet to it an hour later. These were our base fabrics created using the first 5 techniques. 
After lunch we used this fabric to work through the next 5 techniques.

It’s a pretty action packed class to get through all 10.

It would be great to do this as a 2 day class working at a slightly more relaxed pace with more time dedicated to each technique, then have the second day to incorporate all the techniques into one larger piece.

And for those students in my class that were interested in the beautiful wooden block stamps we used, as well as all of you reading this post, they are from The Indian Block Company. I’m fairly certain the company Colouricious will have a booth selling them at International Quilt Festival, Houston this fall.

Everyone was very productive creating a lot of unique fabric and most importantly had a lot of fun doing it.

    I was wondering if you plan on putting together a DVD on the “10 Techniques”. It would be great to just have one place with all the information to work with.

  6. Hi Linda Ann,

    That would be a great idea. I’d love to work on doing something like that.

    Right now all my energy if focused on getting the sale of my loft in chicago to go through in this difficult market, pack, move across country once the sale is finalized, then find a place to live and resettle while juggling a couple other big teaching commitments.

Let me know what you think
