More Orbit printing in Neon Pink

There were some problems with my first printing experiments with my new design Orbit. 
So, I re-carved some parts to have a bit more clarity but it still wasn't right. Then, by chance, 
I decided to change the fabric I was working with... hey presto! What a difference that made, 
can you believe it? Yes, perhaps I am a tad naive but it was news to me ;) Anyway, here it 
is in (the label said) neon red, but it really looks more pink in real life...

It was so much easier to print and I've had a bit of fun with it by adding the neon yellow 
dots :) It's rather fun I think.

I decided to print up some Oasis in the pink too. Unbelievable that this is the same colour,
photographed at the same time AND on the same fabric, but there you have it...

And caught by the layering bug, I took a long ago prepared fat quarter of brayered chartreuse 
and added the Orbit pattern in grey...

So, loads of printing and experimenting going on here... what have you been up to?


  1. Lots of making and creating here, I like the yellow and grey pattern. Have fun! x

    1. Thanks Alessandra :) It seems I'm on a roll! Kx

  2. You know I love them all! A lot!

  3. These are all wonderful - I love the grey and chartreuse. The fabric does make a big difference to the print; the nicest I've worked with so far are silk and a fine linen, which gave absolutely perfect prints. Satin weaves work well too.

  4. Am in love with the grey and chartreuse. Wonderful colour combination.

  5. You're really on to something with this print! Looks great in every color and design. Go, you!
