Gelli plate fabric printing

One of the things I did at the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show last week was take a workshop in Gelli printing on fabric. I can't work out who ran it as it wasn't the woman who was named on the programme but I'll try to find out.  The hour went really quickly and I could have stayed longer but it was nice to be able to have a play and see what other people were doing too.

I started experimenting on paper and then made four fabric prints. Here they are,

I like the way these have turned out and today I quilted one of them. It's only about five inches by seven but it's come out quite nicely. Here it is with some close ups of the quilting.

I've now bought my own gelli plate so I'll be doing some playing soon.
