I had the pleasure of taking a 3 hour screen printing class from Karen Lewis on Saturday night (6-9pm) at QuiltCon this year. I signed up to take the class with my friend Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs, and thankfully she over-prepared her materials for the class. I purchased materials from Karen but then spaced entirely on everything else I needed for the class. Whoopsi! Thanks, Cheryl!!

I was able to get a break from #QuiltConCrewLife and I had a lovely 3 hours in class with @karenlewistextiles learning about screen printing. Class was from 6-9pm on Saturday, and @merel_birdblocks captured the silliness that was happening. Also, huge thanks to Cheryl @meadowmistdesigns for letting me use her class supplies because I completely spaced on bringing anything… 🤣 #Repost @merel_birdblocks with @get_repost ・・・ 6-9 PM might be too late for some people 😉 #quiltcon2018 #screenprintingwithkarenlewis
I was lucky to sit between Cheryl and Merel, who happened to catch me acting a bit late night goofy. I mean, those scissors would make very fashionable glasses, wouldn’t they?
I wasn’t sure if my brain was going to allow me to function at a level to do much in the class, but after doodling and toying around with different ideas, I finally went for a linear star design for my first attempt.
I decided to go for a white on white (well, Kona Snow) print as I felt it would be much more likely that I would use the fabric after the fact. I really love how it turned out!
Speaking of love, I decided to try my hand at some hearts for my second print.
And I tried my best to do an ombré fade from white to black and back out again. It got a bit messy, but boy was it a lot of fun!
And speaking of a lot of fun, I received this awesome hexagon template from the MQG for my perfect QuiltCon attendance for the first 5 years that it has been held.
