Today dyed fabric is the theme.
This summer I spent quite a bit of time outdoors making much of the fabric I’m using all winter. The first is a “sunprint” printed using Jacquard Solar Fast Dyes and various plants plucked from my yard.
After taking a class with Kerr Grabowski in August, I came home and had a great time making fabric with deconstructed screen prints using ProChem MX Procion dyes. This is one of my favorites. I love these colors and can’t seem to stop using them!
Last year, I did my first batch of “shibori,” a Japanese method of tying and stitching fabric , then immersing it in dye to create distinctive patterns on cloth. I’ve almost used up all of these! I have about 8 plus quilts in various stages of progress right now.
