Project Babushka

Here I am at the Prints Charming studio back in March attempting one of their creative courses, Screen Printing. I remember doing it at school and loving it. This was certainly no exception. My friend Vicky and I had lots of fun playing with colours and creating a design for our fabric. With what started out as a peacock plume (too tricky for beginners) ended up a babushka print.

Or should I say pink, butternut pumpkin shaped faceless blobs........Don't worry they will soon have embroidered faces and become a single bed quilt for Rosa.

Drying off just in time to take home......

And here is Vicky's creation which I just love.


  1. Hi Karlyn,

    Love the Babushka creation- I don't think they look remotely like pumpkins!! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  2. These 'pumpkins' are going to make a wonderful quilt - can't wait to see it!

  3. Hi Karlyn! I'm so glad you have a blog! Lea told me you had been thinking about it for a while. Or rather... has she been pestering you for a while? :) I look forward to see more of your lovely creativity! I've added you to my Bloglines list so I don't miss a thing!

  4. Wow Karlyn... these look gorgeous!! I can't wait to see your quilt all finished!!

  5. Hi Marl can't wait to see you on the weekend. Look at you go little blogger. I can't wait to see Rosa's Room and the bits of lovliness on your babushkas. Hugs Lealeax
