This post will walk you through a visual journey of how “Mosaique Bleue: a moroccan inspired tile print” comes to life one block at a time. It’s an intricate Moroccan tile print, consisting of cyan blue star burst motifs, set in pieces of chocolate tile, with accents of french blue, peacock green and apricot.
We start with outline block #1 to print the border.
block #2 dark brown.
block #3 peacock green – trust me it will look green once the dyes dry and the cloth is washed! That applies to all the following images too
block #4 french blue
block #5 light blue
block #7 the embellishment
block #6 apricot. This finished up the border.
This is how the border will look in its final form
Border is done, now we move on to the main print. Pinning it on all sides so that it taut is a critical part of the printing process. Looks easy to do, but it isn’t!
block #1 for the main print
