Last week, I posted more results of my snow dyeing experiments. I mentioned that in some pieces, you could just make out a bit of extra patterning. A few of the pieces shown, were over-dyed prints.
You know, sometimes you pick up fabric and later wonder why.....other times, the price is just too good to pass up. These are generally fabrics that are good candidates for overdyeing.
In this photo, the piece far left, is the print as I purchased it, the middle shows the same piece after batching in the snow dyeing process.....the piece on the far left was actually dyed a second time. I prefer the new colours, but also like the layering that happens when the original print is still visible.
Then there was this fabric...clearance priced...a cotton twill, almost a denim. It was the perfect weight for the project I had in mind...but the colour? Oh No! I don't do pink.....EVER!
This is what it looks like now, all cut up and ready to stitch
Also last week, I was interviewed for the Canadian Quilter's Association.....if you are interested, you can read it here
