Handprinted: a fabric swap

Leslie over at Maze and Vale hosts an awesome swap called Handprinted: a fabric swap.  This is the third round of the swap and the first time I relief printed instead of screen printed.  Note above my fun studio company, Hi Precious!!!

I printed this well kinda triangley pink design on some Pearl Bracelet fabric when I was at Quilt Con in a workshop with Lizzy House.  If you wanna check out some pics from the workshop take a look at my Flickr set.  I had a great time at the workshop and it was so fun to meet Lizzy!

The next design was this cloud with ummm stuff coming out the I thought the designs were pretty fun and I love PINK and printing on top of Pearl Bracelets too :)

Switching it up I mixed some orange ink (and yes Charlotte I think of you every time I say the word "orange" now).

Out of the orange came these acidic looking clouds...

and this cool mountains and hills design.

Here are all four of the FQs I sent out!  Overall I am happy with the way they turned out and I used oil based ink BTW.

These beauties are what I received in the swap!  Aren't I a lucky duck?  Printed by hand clockwise from the top left: Keri, KelleySamantha, and Kristy.

I would without hesitation be a part of this swap again and again, it kicks my butt to print and I like it that way.  


  1. Hi Emily, I love my orange clouds...thanks! It will probably end up as a fun cushion (would a cloud shaped cushion be overkill??) on one of my little girls beds. Keri
