I am inspired to create a Zinnia Quilt...
This is a State Fair Zinnia that is growing
in our flower bed right now.
I am a big fan of Melinda Bula
These are 2 of her Zinnia Quilts
That's all the inspiration I need to get me going!
Today I sorted through the MX dyes:
Red and Pink MX Dyes
I have almost no pink hand dyes.
I have lots of greens for the leaves.
The table is set for FUN:
Half yards of dyers cloth is soaking in soda ash.
An electric hand mixer does a great job
of completely mixing up the dye powders.
After a couple of hours of measuring and mixing:
16 dye pots batching in the sunshine!
The low water immersion technique
gives the fabric textures that will look more
natural for flower petals:
Once haying season is over...
Zinnia Quilt here I come!
