2011 Dye Challenge
I chose a special fabric to make something with before this month's meeting (which was this morning.) Why was the fabric that I chose particularly appropriate? The project leader had given it to me at the Dye Frenzy!
I added stars & waves quilting to a piece of fabric that I double dipped. It was a technique that I hadn't tried before. Unfortunately, this piece was in one of the later dye baths and the colors are more muted than I would have liked.
It seems to need something else. I'm not 100% sure what, but I'm thinking it needs to be over-dyed, painted, or beaded. Only time will tell...
Maybe next year... For now, it seems perfectly happy hanging in my kitchen for the summer!
