Four Months of Journal Quilts

JQ May 2013 Helen Cowans

 

Naturally dyed fabrics and silk thread with Shisha mirrors

Using some tissuetex (thanks Caroline!) and brusho inks to form the background.  
Then printed using a lino cut I made for C&G and the new mangle.  
Stitched in red and black silks.  Great fun!

  1. These are great! I love the quiet circles and raw edges of the top one and also that faint black line at the edge of the white print on the last one. Looks like the mangle has been a real asset!
