Dyeing to Design Class...


I have gone back to school...

I am taking an online class at Quilt University

Dyeing to Design


Lesson 1

Dyeing Gradation.....Black Dye

I am happy with the gradated fabrics.

Elizabeth's dyeing instructions were very easy to follow.





I cut the dyed fabrics in half.

I am saving half for an abstract quilt design.

The other half I am screen printing.





I like Versatex Inks for Thermofax Screen Printing


















The screen printing was successful.

I am heading out to the Thread Shed to see if 

I can put a little quilt together with these fabrics...



Design Wall:


Fabrics: Dark to light




 Here is the completed quilt top:


Birds of a Feather


Tomorrow I will use the rest of the black gradations

for possibly an abstract design.

That should get me all caught up and ready for Lesson 2.

I am a bit behind in the class because of 

the Thread Shed remodel.
