More sun printing!
`This pat weekend I needed to clean up all of the sun printing paraphernalia out of the garage. There's a lot of it that I didn't want to bring back in the house so I decided to see if I could use up most of the remaining paint. I really don't see myself doing any more sun printing for a while and I'll buy any specific paint that I need when that time comes. The paint I had was in my stash over 2 years. I spent a couple more hours painting and printing and here are the rest of the fabrics that I made.
I'm including 2 photos of each set of fabrics with one as a close up. These 4 are more pasta and lace. I kept all of the lace fabrics in my supplies but I tossed all of the pasta. All of that pasta has been in my studio for many years and I'm surprised I hadn't attracted a lot of bugs.
More buttons (that I did not toss out), gears that I collected from my old asthma inhalers and wood snowflakes that a friend gave me. Estelle is going to be upset that I had forgotten about the gears, snowflakes and keys (below). I only found them after they left from the first sun printing session. The plastic gears in asthma inhalers are very cool but I'm glad to be cured of the need for them!
Keys, spaghetti, foam shapes and another piece of lace.
After 2 session fo sun printing I have a stash of 32 fat quarters! This will hold me for several years of postcards and other little projects.
Time to get back to quilting.

I really like the gears fabrics, the buttons, and the keys. But the gears are my favorite of them all.

The sunprinted fabrics came out great! I especially like the keys and spaghetti prints. I think I have a box of keys around here somewhere ...

All that fabric looks yummy! Love the buttons, snowflakes and gears. Are you saying you are cured of asthma?
