Tranquility is due to be submitted in January and Turmoil is due in February. In between I need to get photos reviewed and/or taken so that David can submit work to the "No Girls Allowed" exhibit at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Guess what I will be doing on my next off Friday?
I committed to a 3 yard print order and I also did a sample print on a different fabric. I have enough fabric to experiment on and get my pieces designed. Both are the whitest cottons they have. I have a small Spoonflower swatch book so I was able to compare the fabrics.
It is a good idea to take advantage of all the samples and tools that Spoonflower offers. They have the fabric sample book which is great to see up close and in person the weight, weave and whiteness of the fabric. Since I will be using transparent paints, I wanted a really clean white.
If you are printing colors, Spoonflower also has color profiles for each fabric to use in Photoshop. They are available for both Windows and Mac. Instructions are clear on the page where the download is on where to place them in your computer so the program has access to them.
I can't wait to get my fabric and get started painting. I spent some time on Saturday testing out some stitch designs on a sample fabric. I will be excited to stitch it on my new design.
What are you working on? Are you submitting to a SAQA exhibit?
