I just totally love the serendipitous nature of the prints I've been making. Most of them leave the realm of plant/leaf prints and become organic surface designs.
I've begun doing hand stitching on small pieces of plant-printed cloth. At this point I'm still experimenting with technique, largely whether or not to have thin batting between the front and back fabrics. I like it both ways. The question is whether or not my hands can take it.
I've been so attracted this year, though, to handwork by artists such as Jude Hill, Claire Wellesley-Smith, Karen Turner, and Heike Gerbig, to name just a few -- that I've been waiting for the right moment to delve into handwork myself. Eco prints seem like a perfect opportunity. We'll see how my hands hold out!
I'll upload photos tomorrow of my first quilted eco print fabrics.
