Published in Quilters Newsletter

Last week I got a big envelope in the mail with my advanced copy of the Aug/Sept issue of Quilters Newsletter.

Back in April I did some samples and wrote about Gelli printing fabrics. If you read my blog regularly you will know that I'm a big fan of the gelli plates and use them for my gelli print daily and frequently for my weekly leaves. So check out pages 50-53 for my take on using gelli plates.

Also included in the article is my circles and curves quilt that is made entirely of round gelli prints cut into quarters.

The Weekly Leaf
This weeks leaf is the one that I did for the article, a gelli print of three violet leaves. The first photo shows the first print on the left which is just the outline or shape of the leaves. The second print which is the detail print is the one that I use for my weekly.
 I save a lot of the shape prints and do machine stitching on them. This is the one I did for the article.
