Meet Jane Walton

1 Comment


My  life as a quilter started in the early eighties and I knew from day one that I wanted to create original designs and use unusual fabrics.  The process called Cyanotype, also Blueprinting or Sunprinting soon caught my eye.  The result is familiar to us in architects’ blueprints.  I love the indigo color along with the surprises that happen when the chemicals are washed out of the fabric; the results are not always predictable.  Interesting plants and shibori techniques are used to resist the sunlight.  Botanic Blues  (in the July 21st post) is one of the latest of my blueprinted quilts.


The quilt I am sharing below is a quilt I made for a TEA challenge. It is called: Tea Time, Will it be Green or Orange Pekoe?
