PHOTOCHROMIC BLINDS

Syuzi Pakhchyan Maker Media, Inc PDF

START

1.

»

SELECT YOUR BLINDS

To make the Photochromic Blinds, you’ll need to either purchase a set of roller blinds with white fabric or replace the fabric of another pair of blinds with the fabric that you will screen-print. Measure your windows and purchase a set of blinds that works for those measurements. Remember that the fabric must be white for the photochromic ink to work.

2.

MAKE THE SCREENS

You will need 2 screens with different screen meshes. The screen to be used with the photochromic ink needs to be a coarser screen with a mesh between 85–110. The screen for the fabric ink can have a finer mesh between 110–150.

To learn more about screen meshes, refer to page 52.

The size of your screen must be slighter larger than your graphics. The following tutorial uses a 18"×22" screen burned with 2 images, on opposite sides, to expedite the printing process. If your blinds are fairly wide, print the pattern in the center of the blinds. Another option is to make an extra set of screens (for the second set of images that are mirrored) and print each set of patterns, one at a time.

Garden Gate

M'Liss Rae Hawley C&T Publishing PDF

The Garden Gate pattern is fast and easy—a great size for a wallhanging or baby quilt. The seven fat quarters create a reflection, or mirror image. One fat quarter runs through the center, and the remaining six repeat on either side.

My husband, Michael, and I are avid gardeners, and A Place to

Ponder is reminiscent of our garden. The optional cornerstones are a perfect showcase for embroideries that continue the theme of the quilt.

Materials

Fat quarters require 171⁄2˝ × 20˝ of usable fabric. All other yardages are based on 40˝-wide fabric.

Note: For this quilt, avoid fat quarters with a one-way (directional) print that runs parallel to the 17˝ edge of the fabric. If you select a fat quarter with a one-way print, be sure the direction of the print runs parallel to the 20˝ edge. That way, all the fence posts will run vertically when the strata (strip sets) are pieced, crosscut, and placed in the quilt.

1

■ ⁄2 yard of fabric for back-

ground and inner border

■ Fat quarters of 7 fabrics in assorted values for fence rails*
