I've been busy preparing for my Master Class subject, and I will work with a series of "Flowers". In Quilting Arts Magazine Aug/Sep 2012 I read an article "Creating a series of mini-canvas screen prints" by Margaret Applin. As I had just attended a workshop in thermoscreening I was interested to know more about the process of using Photoshop to create layouts. I draw a picture and from this picture I created a brush in Photoshop. The problem was how to print on fabric. I ironed very delicate linen to freezer-paper and used an HP Photosmart C5180, but I had paper jam. I tried a couple of times without any success but finally I decided to change the HP writer from ordinary paper into envelope-printing and finally I did it!

Finally, there might be a problem for me to have my quilt at the exhibition "Creative Threads - From Afghanistan to Europe" in Paris next week. I have heard from the organizing committe that it is too big, I have mixed up the measures. It is disappointing but we will go to Paris any how.
