Today I was playing with silk screening a negative image instead of a positive. Birch trees work well for that since they are supposed to be light colored.. I then continued the stitching above and below the print to complete the trees.
I also tried silk screening on a pieced background. I did have to touch those up in a few places, but it worked pretty well, and will open up lots of possibilities! (another pillow top, see yesterday's post:-))

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
