Blockprint Fabrics by Madeline Weinrib

by Alexis on November 6, 2012

Over the weekend, Meg and I worked on a shoot for an upcoming DIY story. Without giving too much about the story away, I can say we were experimenting with block printing. It was my first time using linoleum cutting tools and blocks, and it was much easier than I expected and extremely gratifying! We both started imagining future projects to utilize our fledgling skills as block printers.

While I was dreaming about which surfaces in my apartment I might improve if I covered them in color and patterns, I came across Madeline Weinrib’s Blockprint line. Most of what I’d seen in my research entailed very intricate designs that seemed a bit advanced for a novice, but these fabrics reminded me how approachable and elegant simple can be. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what I’ll be attempting to block print and just what type of design the project will call for, but in the meantime, I’m taking inspiration from the whole line. Make sure to keep your eyes out for the project we shot this weekend. Hopefully it will inspire you, too!

Wow! These are beautiful! I tried my hand at blocking printing last month and it didn’t come out like I hoped it would but I’m not giving up. As a person who loves to sew there is nothing better than creating and sewing your own fabric. Thanks for introducingme to Madeline and Can’t wait to see your project.
