Sun printing

Here are some pictures of the sun prints I did. I use a soy/mx dye mix for my sunprinting. I wanted to get into the sun and work so I just did some quick ones. I do like them, I think I am going to make a quick lap quilt with them, maybe take it to florida with me in May to do some light handwork on it. Who knows. The pictures are after heat set but before washout. I used several of my "uglies" and a comercial print. I have not used a comercial print for sun prints before, it went well.
It is scrap from my daughters applique quilt from like 1997. I don't think i will ever be out of those left overs!


  1. These are so bright and happy looking. I think they'd make a great lap quilt. Your snow dyeing looks interesting, too. I spent the last two days at a dyeing workshop with Ann Johnston. Lots of fun!

  2. Thank you, I love bright!
    A workshop with Ann Johnston, that sounds like fun! Did you post pictures?
