Simple and effective and a great idea for children to work on too.
Janet shares with us her love of monoprinting and shows us how she worked on the delightful designs for her lovely new range of fabrics Hearty Good Wishes , and which have now been printed and distributed by Moda.
The colours in the fabrics are muted blues and greys which remind Janet of the English coast in winter – memories of her childhood in Kent.
The fabrics are available as yardage, and as pre-cuts; jelly rolls, and layer cakes and there is a free pattern that you can download at Moda.com where you can also view the range of fabrics.
For supplies ask your local quilt shop or for stockists in the UK contact Wimbourne Fabrics (or The Bramble Patch)

Hearty Good Wishes Book
Janet’s book is inspired by the English coast in winter – to the waves, the spray, the wild salty air and the rosy cheeks.
The chapters in the book have titles that have been inspired by the various states of the waves – from calm to white caps – and the projects range from quilts to hot water bottle covers.
The book is available through us in the shop:
Janet will be at the Festival of Quilts 2014 on Stand G14.
If you have enjoyed this workshop you would like to watch another on monoprinting we have one with Lesley Brankin: and a delightful Iris.
