Singin’ the blues…

November 28, 2016

Well, here I am again!  Between customer quilting and preparing for the Holidays, I’ve been out of touch.  But that means I’ve been doing lots of fun stuff!  Still dyeing for more color.  I went with blues this time…  100_5524I really love the way this one came out…  It looks cold!

Plus I needed some ornies for a swap on flickr.  I saw these fab ornies on FB and decided to give them a go!100_5527

 Aren’t they fun?  Here’s the link that I used if you want to try them as well…

Dyeing for more color…

November 10, 2016

Hahaha…  Pun intended!  I am working on a quilt that will be in several shows next year.

I figured what better backing for it, then to make my own?!

Here’s a sneaky peaky of part of the quilt…100_5513

And here is the dyed backing waiting for ice…  Again, my powdered dyes came from Dharma Trading Company, http://www.dharmatrading.com/dyes/dharma-fiber-reactive-procion-dyes.html and I used Sondra Millard’s technique that I learned in her book “Having a Meltdown”. https://shesgotmojo.com/100_5507And the final result!  (Drum roll please…  DAdaddadadadadaddada)

100_5510Thanks for stopping by!!!  I’ll be back later to show you the whole quilt when it’s done and hanging in it’s first show!!!
