Dandelion Whine


In the early spring of 2010 , DH and I drove up into Grey Co and found this most stupendous field of dandelions EVER! I am not good at estimating acreages but it was an enormous field and it was chocka-block dandelions in full golden bloom! GLORIOUS!!! I HAD to take photos!

DH is a very very patient man and he stopped the car a zillion times while I took pictures of dandelions in all stages of growth. When I got home, I started the editing, enhancing and printing of the pics on fabric. They turned out pretty well for a first shot. I soaked my fabric in Bubble Jet Set and the colour seems to be holding well. I realised today that I did not have  picture of the whole quilt, so once again , DH stepped in to rescue me. He was the holder. I was the picture taker. So...here you are - the Dandelion Whine quilt!

  1. This is very inspiring. Shoot, I may have to set aside my free day to get back into my Photo Shop Elements tutorials.

  2. Beautiful colors. Dandelions really get a bad rap when actually they are so beautiful. I have a paper weight that contains the head of a dandelion in seed. I love it!
