Here is my next endeavour- my Aunty's glorious hydrangea! Are these not colours to die for!! Well, at least they were colours to START dyeing- for making this quilt:-)
I spent much of yesterday testing and recording colours, came up with a palette of colours and started dyeing. Here is where I am to date.
|A few pieces for this quilt , including the test piece where I dropped my colours. It was intended as a throwaway, but LOOK at it!|
|The photo, the pattern and the fabrics so far.|
|Just a different view including the graduated piece. More on it later.|
|This is sort of a boring series of pictures but I have shown you both sides and both ends by folding and turning it all over. COOL, eh!|
Tomorrow, I plan to post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com. It is only Monday now, so ... Maybe by then I will have more pieces to add.
And- I DO!! I have started a new batch, sort of mid value colours for this same project.
|Here is a new graduated piece still lying wet on the table. I DID remember to use the soda ash FIRST!!|
|My table slopes a little, like a mortuary slab!! ....|
|...so... the dye runs and drips off the plastic cover into a basin full of old newspaper. This will stay here for a couple more hours before I rinse and dry it.|
|The remaining eight fat quarters batching on the dryer.|
