Block Printing by jenib320

Winter has definitely set in around here, which is great for crafting! I always seem to be more productive when I'm stuck inside. There is something cozy about sewing when it's snowing out!  This weekend's project was finally trying out block printing! I've had it in the back of my mind (and all the supplies too!), since Christina posted about Block Printing Basics back in 2010.  After seeing the super cute fabrics that Anna recently made, I decided it was finally time for me to try!

I, of course, had to make something bunny related! I am terrible at drawing, so I based my little bun design off of this awesome silhouette that Norma of Petit Design Co did of George a few years ago! Her's was much more detailed than I needed for this project, so I simply used it for the general shape. This wasn't just going to be bunny fabric, it was going to be GEORGE fabric! I cannot wait to sew with it! I printed mine on linen!

I finished up a quilt this weekend. I am re-in-love with free motion quilting! It's so much more relaxing for me than straight line. Not to mention more forgiving! :)  I hope I can share more of this quilt with you soon!

I finally cut into my It's a Hoot by Momo fabric for a new quilt. I'm super excited about it, I love this line!

Some happy mail arrived today! Malka Dubrawsky's fabric line for Moda is finally here! I was happy to be able to grab my favorite prints, some more Oval Elements (love!), and Outfoxed from Julie at The Intrepid Thread!
