handprinted fabric swap III

The handprinted fabric swap, hosted by Leslie from Maze and Vale was great fun, as I thought it would be. Nothing like a deadline to get me to make a final choice and stick with a design.

I made acetate templates and printed the pebbles randomly onto the fat quarter, once dried I added the ladders over the top in a diferent colour.

Theses two are my favourite, I did them in colours to suit my swap partners and I love them.

I think less is more, the red ones have too many circles, sorry partner! You live and learn right?!

all ready to go (they left before the deadline, just slow at posting about it)

I can hardly wait to see what will be dropping through my door, it's so exciting. 
You can see what everyone else has been up to over on flickr.
