Stamping Silk

I've been 'heads down' for the past 3 weeks preparing samples for my classes and presentations at Quilt Festival in Houston. The techniques include Bobbin Quilting with Thick Threads, Stamping with Paint & Ink and a mixed media session I call 'Print, Peel & Stick'. I have tried to create samples that will show at least 2 of the 3 topic areas (to save room in the suitcase!).

Here is my latest project - a cellphone cover for my new phone and a matching book cover.

I had some scraps of silk in my colours, I stamped them with paints, cut them up and fused them to light Steam-a-Seam 2. Added batting and a backing and then did a bit of stitching to hold everything in place. I added a few fun beads around the top of the cellphone case and used Razzle Dazzle thread by Superior Threads to bobbin quilt the book cover. I'm pleased with how these turned out!

Hi Daphne! I love your fabrics for the book cover! I just had to say hello...we have the same last name! I've been thinking a lot about doing some painting on fabrics and/or stamping on fabrics to add color and texture...is that what you have done here? Beautiful! Laura Greig

Hi Laura, Fun to 'meet' another Greig! Yes, I stamped the fabric with paint. I've been making lots of stamps from a variety of materials. The ones I used for this project are fun foam triangles arranged in a pattern on a block of wood and pieces cut from sticky-backed insulation for wrapping pipes. I got this from my local hardware store. I used Setacolor paints and heatset when the paint was dry. It's so easy to do!
