Thanks everyone for your tips and suggestions on photo mattes and stenciling. It is absolutely amazing how much knowledge we collectively have. I am very close to being done my Drunk Love in a Log Cabin Quilt that is based off of Denyse Schmidt's work. Here are a few more blocks.
I know it doesn't look like much now, but when they are all laid out together it is very exciting.
This next weekend I am going to skip the mountain bike race I was considering. It is fairly far away and takes up one whole day. This way, I will have more time to train for the next one, study, and maybe finish this quilt up. Good thing because I already have another one I am planning.
I think I may have already shown this fabric before, but I find myself staring at it frequently.
I have found some amazing fabric printing blogs out there lately. I have been haunting them looking for tips and other ideas. I also picked up a silk screen and silk screening paints at a yard sale last weekend and cannot wait to try it.
