Blue Green Line - Spirals, Stripes, Salamanders and Dots

  Now showing the Blue Green Line set of fat quarters hand dyed by yours truly.  Though the colorway is limited and the designs are simple, but the techniques were varied in creating this grouping.  I used mono-printing, stamping (with my own stamps that I designed), painted on thickened dye, dye paste and over-dyeing.   The designs are spirals, stripes, salamanders and dots.  Again I have used fat quarter sized pieces of 100% cotton fabric.  This is an easily managed size to work with, although larger pieces of other designs and colors are in my stash that I have also designed, you just need more room to spread out! Here are a couple of views.  Have a look, hope you like what you see.

Some of My New Fabrics

Here are just a few of my newest fabrics.  All are 100 per cent cotton, hand dyed and printed by me!  Hope you like seeing them. 

These are fat quarter size.  They have been dyed at least once, then over dyed for additional texture (fish fabric).  Then each was printed using fabric print medium using my own designs. 

They were very much fun to make.

Watch for more next weekend!

Disappointing Results

The results of the Rhode Island Small Quilt Challenge are disappointing as there were no entries.  I thought there would be at least a few entries, but I guess with the economy and busy lives of people there just was not enough interest.  That's okay though - I am onto my next project that I may include on this blog at a later date.   I haven't any pictures to show at this moment - but check back this coming weekend and I will have some of my hand dyed fabrics to see.  Have a great day everyone.
