Green is a not a colour I use a lot but after a couple of printing sessions, I seem to be accumulating a collection – maybe a future quilt. The above fabrics are mainly thermofax printed with Permaset and some discharge (deColourant).

As I’m not really a quilter, I feel I need some practice with putting a quilt together, quilting and finishing but I won’t be doing any very intricate, traditional work. I am […]
