I belong to a tiny little quilt guild
The Harlan Valley Quilters
This year our Challenge Quilt Theme is...
is the season I have chosen for my challenge quilt this year.
Most of my quilts start with an inspiration...

The cover of this scrap book inspires me...
The COLORS grabbed my attention...
The Botanicals called to me...
This is the inspiration for my
2011 Challenge Quilt
How can I get this FEEL in fabric?
This scrapbook cover reminds me of the sun prints
I have been creating over the last 3 summers
Time to get out the paint brushes:
It is September and this is the last of our sunny days
here in Western Oregon,
so I better get to work...
I pulled out the Pebeo Setacolors:
I will try and use these wooden letters in the
sun printing process.
It didn't take long to fill up the back yard with
painted fabrics printing in the sunshine.
I am sticking with the 5 colors that appealed
to me on the scrap book cover
Botanicals and Wooden Letters
printing in the sun...
This is what the print looks like after the botanicals
and letters are removed.
Ferns Printing in the Sun
Printing in the Sun...
after the ferns and letters are removed.
Sweet Gum Leaves printing in the sun...
Big Oak Leaves & Sweet Gum Leaves
17 Sun Prints drying on the clothesline
The scrap book cover was a great inspiration!
after they have been removed from the painted fabrics.
Many times I press these in a book and re-use them.
Even Clean-Up is Colorful
It was a fun day and a great beginning to my
2011 Challenge Quilt.
