I am gearing up for another 100 day project! This will be my fourth time participating in the official 100 Day Project. Last year I did 100 improv shirt blocks to commemorate the Great Resignation. In 2021, I had a 100 day monster drawing project. And in 2020 I learned the Korean technique of Bojagi hand sewing. Three totally different projects! After weighing different options for this year, I have finally settled on a 100 day idea.
I'm going to be Gelli Printing on fabric for 100 days, and then working my prints into a quilt. Gelli printing is a new to me technique that I've been exploring the last few months. Most of my prints have been on paper...
Gelli printing is done using a gelli plate, like this one, a brayer and paints. I've been using acrylic paints for my prints, along with stencils and other interesting tools. If you're curious about the process, go to YouTube and search gelli printing. But only if you have hours to spare! I still have a lot to learn, but I'm having a great time doing it. Here's my favorite print so far...
I experimented with printing on fabric a while back. These prints are currently in the process of becoming a quilt which I'll share in my next post...
The 100 day project officially begins on February 22, which also happens to be the day I leave for Quiltcon in Atlanta. I'm thinking I'll do a few days work ahead of time so I don't start up the project already behind. Will you be joining in with a project of your own? I'd love to hear all about it and follow along.
What a great idea for your project. Gelli printing is all new to me - I didn't even know you could do it on fabric until I saw you post about your improv triangle sew-along project. So I'll be following with interest! I AM planning on joining (officially for the first time) and I think I'll sew with scraps again, as I so enjoyed it when I did my own 50 day scrap project a while back.
You’ve done so many great 100 day challenges and this one will also to fantastic.
They will make amazing colourful quilt.
