Most of the printing blocks I design are stand alone designs, which I combine to make an interesting design or pattern across the textile surface. I am interested in creating designs that create a new design when they are combined. This stylized feather is something I can imagine creating an interesting pattern in a group of four.
For a first run, I have sewn together two long narrow pieces of hand dyed orange/pink fabric. Then, I have put masking tape around the four edges to create a border. I decide to print the entire thing in black in order to create a very graphic image.
Here it is with the masking tape still in place after the printing.
