Any crab stamps in the mix?????

: )

Mary Anne

Cut that up for postcard backgrounds? Say it isn't so!! Not that there's anything wrong with postcards, but that piece of fabric is just too nice for that. How about a fall table runner (for lack of any other original ideas)??

How cool are they! I love the leaf printing. You should have it a table runner that hangs off both ends of the table. It would be awesome!

I love the stamping on the napkins! Tell me, though, how do you get them so crisp? Sometimes when I stamp on fabric there are parts of the stamp that don't "take" to the fabric.

Just curious?

What fun stamping!

I wouldn't use it for postcards. My approach would be something like a collage and have it as a border or special section.

Good hint on the ink vs. paint.

I really need to try stamping and dying this year.



I vote for a table runner too - its lovely.

I need to take a day to play.


Loved seeing all the stamping experiments and love your piece - it really is a beautiful piece of fabric. I have been thinking for a few moments of how you could use it (I, too, would have a hard time cutting into it!). One idea (not sure how cost effective it would be) is to have your image printed out on yardage (e.g. a site like spoonflower)to sell, or do more with it in other projects. Another idea is to incorporate it into placemats (and you know I love your placemats!) Also, and this will probably be hard to visualize, but check out the High Tech Tucks pattern by Caryl Fallert ( I am working on making one of these quilts now. I bought the CD and the pattern. The CD had a wonderful gallery of her use of this technique she developed. Your fabric would be the focal fabric, which is cut in strips. Tucks are sewn between the strips, which have a solid contrast fabric(the pattern shows black) on one side and a solid or gradient color on the other. So even though the focal fabric is cut into strips, it is the 'background' for the quilt. I think this could look really cool with a subtle earth tone on one side of the tucks and the gradient colors of the background on the other side. Sorry to be so long-winded here, but you did ask for ideas!
