Today I took a morning workshop on textile printing from Lotta Jansdotter. I was fortunate enough to travel to her home country of Sweden when I was in college and I just love everything about the Swedes. Her style and design work are so appealing to me.
First we made blocks from speedycut to do block printing with paint and a brayer. Then we cut stencils from acetate with an exacto knife to use on top of her own fabrics. It was a very fun, hands on workshop!
Andrew, the great travel food planner, had found a quick lunch spot for our last meal in Austin. The Easy Tiger makes all of their own breads, cheeses and cures their meats there. Yummy. I could eat these pretzels dipped in lager cheddar every day! Plus, I loved watching the ping pong games and other activities going on outside on their extensive patio.
Austin and Quiltcon, you did not disappoint! I sure hope to make it back in a few years!
