Whole piece quilt block printing textile craft ideas

Whole Piece Quilt

Whole piece quilt making is a great tool for you to use up recycled fabric! Block printing over the top of old fabric can create wonderful effects. First start by taking a whole piece of fabric, it can be commercial fabric, hand dyed or even some recycled fabric (such as an old duvet cover or old curtains perhaps!) Lay the whole cloth on the table, remembering to place a foam mat under the area that you are block printing. You can either start your printing in the middle or start with the border. Create patterns as you go along. Think too about the orientation of your designs and that will help you with either your pattern theory or your random printing. We find it easiest to start block printing from the outside inwards. You can combine different printing techniques too with rubbing plates & markal sticks, with stencils and with dry sponging. The more you combine these skills, the more creative your whole piece quilt will be. Once you have finished printing the front you can then stitch that to the back with some piping to make your whole piece quilt. No piecing together, this quilting technique is relatively quick and easy.

We recommend that you use Colouricious Fabric Paints as they are easily fixed to be permanent by ironing the fabric both sides. If you have a tumble dryer you can heat fix your fabric by tumble drying it for 10 minutes on a hot setting.

Happy Block Printing!

Kids craft patchwork quilting

Patchwork for children

Here is a kids craft idea for patchwork quilting.

Quilting-patchwork-block-prints  Quilt-in-a-day  patchwork-kids-crafts-block-printsKids crafts is so much fun using block prints. during the holidays why not try block printing a quilt in a day. Children can easily block print lovely patchwork pieces to stitch into a colourful quilt. Quilting for youngsters can be very rewarding if you use great colours and wooden printing blocks. if you want to know how to make a quilt here are some simple instructions.

How to block print your own fabric

1) Choose a selection of random sized fabric to use as your patchwork.

2) Block prints are created using wooden printing blocks to print onto each piece of patchwork. Remember you must have a foam mat underneath your fabric to create a clear block print.

3) Children can just print in straight rows for a simple and easy effect.

4) Try and play with different patterns with your wood stamps to create different designs. There is so much you can do with just one block by rotating it and placing it in different positions.

5) Use Colouricious fabric paints which you simply iron to fix. The fabric paints that we recommend are very reliable. When they have been fixed the colour stays permanent and you can wash your fabric up to 40 degrees without damaging the paint. Also the fabric stays soft and is not hardened by this paint.
