Nine eager quilters converged at my house Saturday to try two methods of sun printing on fabric for the third “Artistic Exploration” session. While the weather was not the most cooperative—too much humidity and not enough sun – we experimented with cyanotype and dye painted sun prints. Several learnings were taken home as well as the fabric prints: you can’t 100% accurately predict what the uv rays will do with any given object and its shadows; high humidity slows the process so much that you can’t get clear prints with the dye prints; cyanotypes were the easiest; experimenting is fun. Bottom line for me was the energy and ideas exuding from each participant that is providing motivation for the creation of artful quilts. Enjoy the photos generously shared by the participants.
