A Peek through the Garden Fence - A New Work Underway

Here's a peek at a new work that is under way.
A while back I participated in Teresa Shippy's tin tile printing workshop, created some great prints and fell in love with the process.  Because of other projects on my worktable I didn't explore the technique further until recently, but last week I set up a little work station in my driveway and set about making four fabric blocks with Teresa's technique.
 This quilt top is now at the stage where I need to consider how I am going to quilt it and what, if anything, I need to add to really make the tin-tile* prints pop.  I'll post more about this work as it progresses.

*Note:  I used Teresa's technique, but I did not use a ceiling tin tile.  I used a wrought iron piece that I picked up at a yard sale that a friend was having.


  1. Looking good, Linda. It's been perfect weather for Teresa's technique. xoxo Mia

    1. You've got that right, Mia. The weather is perfect. The pieces dry in a matter of minutes. I'm at the stage that I want to start quilting the piece, but I don't have enough batting so I guess I'll need to take a trip to the yardage store.

  2. Well thanx for this nice pics i will use them in my program for school where we have to describe how we want to solve the world by planting some trees and other things.
    many thanks from

Whether it has talons or something else attached, I am not sure, but I knew that if it did land in my pool and I did attempt to save it, it would try to carve me up like Leatherface from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.'fences quotes
