Dyeing Results--and Design Wall Monday


I have about 10 different ombre fabrics. I love the way they look, but I didn't know what to do with them. I came across a pattern on Connecting Threads that gave me this idea. I cut one strip of fabric all the way across the width, then cut it into pieces and it get's sewn back together. I don't know if the whole quilt will be from this one fabric, or if I'll use bunches of different colors. I really like the black as a neutral. I tried white (using Paint to see what it would look like) and I just don't like it as well.Check Judy's blog to more design walls.


Here is the shibori...kind of fun. I don't know what I'll do with it, but it was fun. Obviously I need to  improve my technique if I'm going to do this again. The cloth is 36 x 45 and was wrapped around a metal pipe I had laying around. I used fire red and deep orange together. I like the two colors together and might do something with them again.


The onesies came out really bright. They're still not dry so they'll dry a little lighter. I have to wash all of these still, and have more stuff that still needs to be rinsed. I'll probably do that tomorrow.


How fun is this!

Great design wall. I like the block using just one (actually two with black) fabric. I like your dyed fabric; very pretty.
