Sun Printing By LuAnn Kessi Part 4




Sun Printing


Guest: LuAnn Kessi





The Sun Prints are completed…





It's time to get them up on the Design Wall:


The odd sized prints will create a challenge…








They are trimmed up and ready 

to go back on the Design Wall...














This is a hand dye by Vicki Welsh.

These dyed colors work well with my painted sun prints.

This fabric will make a great border!











Here is the completed Quilt:

I hope I have inspired you to get out your paints and fabric

and spend a day in the sunshine creating sun prints!


My Best To You,

  9. I have a Sweet 16 Sit Down Long Arm, but have quilted bed size quilts in my little Bernina with a 7 inch throat. Use what you have and make it work for you.
