What thread do we use for our machine quilting? In this article Laura will share her tips for how to choose the right thread for the effect you’re looking for.
Plant Printed Sketchbook
Take a look through Linda’s plant printed sketchbook. The pages for this book were plant printed using her simple method. They were then bound together by Laura to make the book. Linda’s added drawing, stamping, painting with watercolour and acrylic ink and some small collage elements.
If you’re intrigued by plant printing please do take a look at our video workshop on the topic which included a lesson from Laura on how to make your own sketchbook from the papers you create. Details below.

See how you can remix a single piece of hand dyed fabric to create a beautiful appliqué design. Laura’s using digital embroidery for her example, but you could try the technique with traditional bonded appliqué too.
