I've been experimenting a bit with block printing and hand painting fabric lately. It's really fun!
I've been really into simple, graphic, imperfect looking patterns lately, so I printed some up to include in a new quilt.
I love how they looked mixed in with these pretty prints!
These fabrics will all be included in a new traveling quilt project I am doing with a few friends. I stitched up two starter blocks for the quilt and shipped them off this week to start the project. I've had this first block design in my head for awhile, just some simple pieced stripes with a gold heart appliqued on top!
My second block was improv pieced. Just strips put together on different angles. I mixed in my own prints in this one, which was fun! Now I want to make an entire quilt like this.
Pretty happy with how these turned out! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else makes to add to the quilt. You can follow along on Instagram under the #fantasticquiltvoyage hashtag.
