weekly photo challenge : between

I have to admit that this week I am torn “between” working on the weekly photo challenge blog post and printing fabric. Fabric printing is clearly winning. I am taking part in a self-directed residency program at the Alberta College of Art and Design. The residency program is organized by CONTEXTURAL, a local fibre arts co-operative. I am using my residency to silk screen images on cotton fabrics which will be used in my quilts. I started with the idea of disguising some older fabrics I don’t like any more, but now I’m having fun working on all kinds of fabrics. Sometimes I work to enhance the existing design, other times I try to completely alter the design, and many times my designs fall somewhere in between! Here are a few samples.

  3. As usual, Terri, you’re a gushing fountain of creativity. Very inspired! I am sure Kush is looking forward to laying on a stack of these when the time comes for you to do quilting.

    1. She doesn’t need to wait that long. As soon as the pieces are printed and heat set, I bring them home. Kush has already given her “perch of approval” to the pile. Admittedly it’s not that difficult to get her approval…
