Using the delicious 28wt @aurifilthread from my Wabi Sabi Sewing thread collection box to crosshatch quilt this one. 28wt is perfect for letting the stitches shine with machine quilting. What do you use to quilt with? I’d love to know what your go to is...x ••• #karenlewistextiles #aurifil #aurifilthread #wabisabisewing #qui#quilting #quilt #tod#todaysquilter #makower #makoweruk #flyinggeese #patchwork #folk #ninepatch #design #pattern #todaysquilter #quiltcommission #juki

Remember those @oakshottfabrics panels I printed for @pappersaxsten ? Take a look at her latest post to see the class she’s teaching at @vamuseum this weekend...how cool is the block she’s teaching? And...not wanting to blow my own trumpet n all...BUUUUUT...how amazing do the screen printed panels look??! I hardy recognised them! I put it all down to Jenny’s brilliant vision and her students excellent work. I can’t wait to see the finished blocks hopefully later today. ••• #karenlewistextiles #oakshott #pappersaxstenworkshop #vandamuseum #qui#quiltingworkshop #scr#screenprintedfabric #han#handprintedfabric #handprinted #screenprinted #quilting #quiltingcotton #patchwork #sewing #crafting #design #pattern #surfacepattern #surfacepatterndesign

{ printing on linen } I’ve been having a play on some of Fabric Club 2019’s linen panels and liking what I see. There’s something about the texture of linen coupled with the tactile paint that is screen printed on top.
