The design was directly inspired by an art deco tile. I had to modify it since my carving skills are a little rusty. I did it many years ago in college, but that was almost 30 years ago. Things have changed.
Upon returning home, I started drawing on the two pieces of leftover tracing paper. On Monday, I went to the art supply shop, got a few things, and tried them out this morning.
It's a lot of fun, and I have some space in my garage where I'm thinking of setting up a little area dedicated to block printing. That's saying something, considering I don't really have a space in my home dedicated to sewing but have made a few quilts.
Maybe I should set up the machine in the garage, too! A big thank you to Valori Wells, an excellent teacher! If you ever have an opportunity to take a class with Valori, I highly recommend it!
