 Korak piecing is fun. Printing one own fabrics is fun. But I start having doubts that both together have satisfying results. I'm not sure. Tell me: Is it a disadvantage if the pattern gets lost to this degree? I wonder should I mix my self-printed fabrics with more solids? I'm in an utterly experimental phase.
Linoprints, painted after printing
The whole cloth, looking pretty chaotic;
I thought it would get better
if I cut it into small pieces...

The complete square with own prints

More self-printed cloth
More Estonian patterns, birds and fish
A lino stamp
Paint on a glass pane for monoprint,
you can see the oak table though it
And what about my latest project?

The connections of the big nine patch are done, connecting 9 nine-patches and separating them with small squares. For a bed quilt, I found out I will need 7x10 patches. Nine of seventy! Will I be able to do that? But what can you do with a 24x24" quilt? To continue is my fate.

I love your completed square, I can't wait to see what you do to continue. Looks like you have been busy while I have been gone :)

the pattern getting lost creates new interesting patterns. i have a book on korak but have yet to try it.

Hi, Eva. Your future quilt is already smashing--love your use of black with the bright colors. So dramatic (the only way to be). Great post.
best, nadia
