Fun Play Date with Janis - Sun printing

Yesterday my little Kavin and I spent the afternoon with amazing friend Janis . She does amazing art quilts and free motion quilting. The best part is she makes her own prints too.  How cool is that? Check out her blog Turtle Moon Impressions.

Hema and Janis

She offered me to come play with her Sun printing techniques. It was really wonderful and I am totally hooked. Thank you so much Janis.

Here are couple of our Sun-printing in progress:

Our sun prints are drying in the clothesline. Janis had washed them in a special detergent. 

Finally taking a break after all that printing. Do you see the tent, that's where the prep work happens. Janis has an amazing setup there with everything needed for printing.

Janis was explaining something to me, while was checking out newly acquired Thomas Train :). 
Thank you Janis and Bill. He is absolutely thrilled about it.

While we were experimenting with Sun prints, Kavin kept himself occupied looking for and chasing Janis's cat Tutu. He also got to play with lots of Cars and of course the Thomas Train. For more pics check out Janis's post.

Thank you Janis for having us over. We both had such a wonderful time and weather was awesome too.
A beginning of new obsession :)

Happy Quilting!
