Quiltmaking for The Forest Project
About Spoonflower's Digital Textile Printing
Digital textile printers are large-format inkjet printers specially modified to run fabric. Unlike conventional textile manufacturing, digital printing entails very little waste of fabric, ink, water or electricity. Spoonflower prints using eco-friendly, water-based inks on natural and synthetic fiber textiles. No additional chemicals are used in the printing or preparation process.
Photographs of trees, plants, flowers, seeds, snow, earth, birds, turtles and snakes were taken on the 60-acres that was clear-cut for development. The photographs were processed multiple times in IPhoto, Pages and Lightbox, before being spliced together to create patterns. Over one thousand color options of dozens of designs are available online through the Beloved Sycamore Shop at Spoonflower.com.
Working with Maureen Anderson and Phyllis Mondak, of Quilting Adventures, Dawn is collaborating with the quiltmaking community.
