Fabric Dyeing

Roses, landscape quilts, tulips, pansies, abstract quilts . . . what's in store for these yummy hand-dyed fabrics?

My first dyeing experience was so much fun. With no expectations, I just played with my three dyes: turquoise, magenta and yellow. I like the way the overdyed purchased tone-on-tone printed fabrics turned out. Their white image lines add nice textures and interest.

Next time I'll play with color gradations.

I agree with you, I love the effect of over dyeing tone on tone fabrics. Your fabrics came out great.
