Yesterday, I taught my class, Beyond the Potato Print.

Turnips, carrots, onions, cucumbers, broccoli, pomegranates, pears and more were transformed into print blocks!

We had an occasional customer poke her head in...a bit perplexed...a cooking class in the fabric store?

What we were cooking up were some delicious fabrics!

On another note...I was so excited to receive my first paycheck from Quarry Books! Now I really CAN say that I'm an author.

Lynn Krawczyk has announced the winner of the fabric packet from The Printed Fabric Bee over at her blog, Smudged Textiles Studio --Congrats, Marsha!


  1. It was great fun and I love the fabrics I made.

    1. I'm so glad you had a great time and I absolutely love your fabrics as well...gotta get me some onions and another pomegranate!

  2. These are really lively and fun. I especially like the luscious greens in Floris's Lime and Lentils ... colour right up my street!

  3. Congratulations, Julie and these printed fabrics look like so much fun. I love Floris F's garlic prints - I see little turtle shells.

    1. I love those garlic prints too...they were a real surprise!
